Cassowary Coast Regional Council’s travelling information van is touring Queensland’s Caravan and Camping Expos. The ‘I-VAN’ will promote the Cassowary Coast as the number one destination for nature and adventure action.

The I-VAN and support team are attending Expos from Cairns to Mackay this month, helping travellers to plan their next holiday amongst the pristine natural wonders of the Cassowary Coast including its spectacular islands, reefs, beaches, and ancient rainforests.

Division Six Councillor and Economic Development and Tourism portfolio holder, Kylie Farinelli, stated that the Cassowary Coast is emerging as an adventure destination with world-class natural experiences, as well as events, and it is important for neighbouring areas to know what we have on offer.

“We encourage visitors at the Expos to come and talk with the I-VAN team who have extensive knowledge of the region and can offer local insights and tips for planning your next holiday.

“There are a number of resources available at the I-VAN, including the colourful list of ‘102 Things to Do’ on the Cassowary Coast’, a montage of sites, adventures, and hidden gems to explore.  And not forgetting to mention the opportunity of entering an amazing competition with the major prize including either two nights at the Kurrimine Beach King Reef Resort, or two nights at Castaways Resort and Spa, Mission Beach.”

“I-VAN is also promoting a number of sporting and community events, encouraging residents from Townsville, Cairns, Mackay and surrounding areas to get involved in ‘Adventure August’ as either a participant or a spectator,” Councillor Farinelli advised.

I-VAN’s next stop is the Mackay Expo being held at the Mackay Showgrounds from May 21 – 23.  Mackay locals and travellers are encouraged to attend, say hello, and plan their number one ‘Thing to Do’ in the Cassowary Coast.  Tickets are available for the expo at https://mackayexpo.com.au/
