National Tourism Industry group host AGM on the Capricorn Coast

The Board of GALTA chose Yeppoon on the Capricorn Coast to hold their 2023 Annual General Meeting, enjoying a familiarisation of our beautiful destination during their stay.

Flying into Rockhampton on direct flights with BONZA from Cairns, Sunshine Coast and Melbourne, these tourism industry professionals loved the hospitality and experiences on offer.

Magical views overlooking Keppel Bay were appreciated from their apartments at Oshen Yeppoon and fabulous dining experiences were enjoyed at  Vue Wine Bar & Restaurant and the Waterline Restaurant, Keppel Bay Marina.

They enjoyed a fabulous day on the water with Funtastic Cruises after transferring to Great Keppel Island with Keppel Konnections to have a quick site inspection at Great Keppel Island Hideaway.

They absolutely loved the diversity of experiences including the Koorana Crocodile Farm, Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary, High Valley Dawn Permaculture Farm, Capricorn Caves, Mount Archer Nurim Skywalk.

From Reef to Rainforest, Koalas to Keppel, Caves to Crocs, and so much more, our destination’s appeal is most certainly growing, with these famils so very important in raising awareness to key representatives in the tourism industry.
