Tourism and Events Queensland CEO visits Capricorn
Posted on July 31st, 2020
TEQ CEO Leanne Coddington and Acting Group Executive Partnerships, Therese Phillips, visited our destination this week, with Leanne experiencing the Capricorn Caves, Pumpkin Island and Great Keppel Island for the very first time!
As part of a whirlwind road trip around this great state, Leanne and her husband drove from Longreach to Emerald, catching up with our Central Highlands’ colleagues at lunch, before traversing the Tropic of Capricorn, detouring through historic Mount Morgan.
A small industry dinner was enjoyed at Headricks Lane and after an overnight stay at Empire Apartment Hotel, an early morning visit to the Capricorn Caves, was followed by an afternoon onboard Freedom Fast Cats Wild duck to Pumpkin Island and Great Keppel Island, followed by another small industry dinner at Vue Wine Bar and Restaurant. Leanne recorded a message from the Caves in this week’s Industry enews and sent a note to say “my visit was great – thanks so much for taking the time to ensure I got an in-depth look at the region”.
