Noosa to Host Statewide Tourist Forum 

Member for Noosa, Glen Elmes, has welcomed the announcement that Noosa will host this year’s DestinationQ conference, the premiere annual Queensland tourism gathering.

Mr Elmes said the decision confirmed Noosa’s position as “the jewel in the crown of the Sunshine Coast’s tourism industry”.

“Noosa has an international reputation for its glorious beach and surrounding natural environment with the necessary supporting infrastructure to make any holiday complete,” Mr Elmes said.

“When people come to Noosa, everything they want is on their doorstep, whether they are seeking luxurious accommodation with all the trimmings or a more modest holiday experience.

“Hastings Street is known around the country for the wonderful variety of dining, shopping and entertainment options it offers.

“Of course, there’s also the year round program of festivals and events like the Festival of Surfing, the Noosa Jazz Festival and the Noosa International Food and Wine Festival which bring in thousands of visitors from across the country and across the world.

“Add to that lineup the Noosa Ultimate Sports Festival, the Noosa Long Weekend Festival and the Noosa Triathlon, and you have the complete tourist destination package.

“I could think of no more fitting place to hold a tourism conference, and I look forward to helping the businesses and people of Noosa show tourism operators from across the state how it’s done.”

DestinationQ will be held from16-17 September, hosted jointly at the Sheraton Noosa Resort and Spa and the Outrigger Little Hastings Street Resort and Spa.
