CEO Christmas Message

This marks the end of a brilliant year for TNT. It’s almost one year, one week, and one day since we started operations as your Regional Tourism Organisation and we’ve been overwhelmed by the positive support from industry, councils and stakeholders in what we’re aspiring to achieve. Some highlights for the year have included:
  • Setting up Tourism HQ, upstairs at Centreway Arcade
  • Developing a regional tourism brand aligned to Go Behind The Scenery
  • Creating a Destination Plan with industry to direct our industry’s future endeavours
  • Promoting the region both inter-state and intra-state
  • Facilitating ‘China Ready’ workshops
  • Advocating for cycle tourism infrastructure developments
  • The launch of our regional website –
  • Working with Dark Mofo on the 2014 Winter Festival!
  • To name but a few!
We took the opportunity on Thursday 12th December to celebrate with our industry these achievements, as well as recognise the people in our industry that really make this region a great visitor destination.
It only leaves me to say please have a safe and happy Christmas break – enjoy your time with friends and family – and if they’re from out of town, do make use of the TNT Local Host program to show off a bit!
Merry Christmas
