Hinchinbrook Open Day postponed for a brighter day in May
With poor weather conditions and heavy rain expected over the coming days, organisers have made the decision to postpone this Saturday's Hinchinbrook Open Day.
Townsville Enterprise General Manager Tourism and Events, Patricia O'Callaghan, said the Hinchinbrook Open Day will now be held on Saturday 10 May when it is hoped weather conditions will be more favourable.
"The interest in the Hinchinbrook Open Day has been overwhelming with a full bus load of visitors booked to visit the region and more expected to drive their own cars there on the day. We want to ensure that all visitors have the best possible experience and the organising committee has decided that the best outcome will come from postponing the Open Day until after the weather has passed."
"This weekend we're expecting grey skies and a lot of rain which will hamper the planned itinerary with several outdoor activities scheduled."
"The Regional Open Days aim to showcase what's on offer across Townsville North Queensland and encourage people to holiday at home, supporting the local industry."
"We are now looking forward to showcasing Hinchinbrook to Townsville residents on Saturday 10 May and giving them an experience they will thoroughly enjoy and we encourage those who can't get on a bus to jump in the car with family and friends and attend the free events."
The Hinchinbrook Open Day has been coordinated by the Hinchinbrook Shire Council and Hinchinbrook Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Townsville Enterprise and Tourism and Events Queensland and is part of a larger campaign, ‘Tourism is Everyone's Business'. The campaign aims to educate residents on the value of tourism to the region and encourage residents to holiday at home.
