Spend Brisbane Holiday Dollars in Moreton Bay Region

Posted: 2pm 16 Jul 2021

Lucky recipients of the second Brisbane Holiday Dollars voucher draw have until August 15 to book and travel. Tourism operators across the Moreton Bay Region are ready to welcome them.

A second chance draw has been released, giving 19,000 recipients from South East Queensland the opportunity to enjoy experiences and accommodation across greater Brisbane, including the Moreton Bay Region.

There are 33 operators across the Moreton Bay Region participating in the campaign and ready to welcome guests and showcase the beauty and hospitality of the region.

Many operators are offering unique and never before seen deals to appeal to voucher recipients and encourage them to stay and enjoy experiences in Moreton Bay.

Mayor Peter Flannery says interstate borders might be closed, but the red carpet is being rolled out in Moreton Bay Region.

“This is the perfect excuse to holiday at home and discover the beauty of your own backyard,” he says.

“Especially if you live in Brisbane, why not escape the city to reignite childhood memories in Redcliffe, take the family on an adventure through our breathtaking hinterland, discover the pristine beaches of Bribie or book a farm stay that’s just minutes from home.

“A holiday here couldn’t be easier and you’re not going to receive warmer hospitality than here in the Moreton Bay Region, not to mention our incredible cuisine and seafood.”

Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism Chairman Shane Newcombe welcomes the State Government’s second chance round of Brisbane Holiday Dollars.

“It’s no secret that the tourism sector has been one of the hardest hit during COVID-19. We are hearing a lot of fatigue and frustration, particularly off the back of the most recent lockdowns interstate and here, that again affected school holiday trade,” Mr Newcombe says.

“I encourage locals, who have been lucky enough to receive a voucher, to support their community and spend their money in the Moreton Bay Region”.

Mr Newcombe commends the State Government on the Brisbane Holiday Dollars initiative but is calling for further support for the industry.

“This is a great initiative, but it only goes so far. We need a comprehensive package for the tourism industry that addresses the significant issues being faced,” he says.
