Four-year plan to boost Moreton Bay Region tourism

By Tanayah Wakefield

Time is running out for people involved in tourism to have their say on the Moreton Bay Region’s draft Tourism Opportunity Plan.

The draft sets out Council’s intentions for tourism up to 2027, with a focus on generating value for the region rather than volume.

Among the ideas to generate longer visitor stays are kayaking tours in Pumicestone Passage, Indigenous tours focused on birds, bush tucker and cultural heritage and equine trails with tours.

The plan also says there’s enough demand to support the development of eight internationally branded hotels with a total of 1235 rooms in the next decade – a major increase on the current 204 full-service branded rooms in the region.

As well, it found there’s a need to increase other forms of accommodation such as caravan parks, glamping and luxury boutique properties to encourage people to stay in Moreton Bay.
