Nikki said this event has for a number of years provided a great opportunity to promote what LPS has to offer tourism wise, to a targeted audience.
“It is pleasing to note the awareness by attendees of what we offer increasing year by year. The Newcastle region is only a couple of hours drive from the Shire making us a perfect destination for people wishing to spend a weekend camping and looking around,” Nikki said.
“Many spoke about their positive experiences staying at the Wallabadah Freedom Camping area and their intention to return. We told them about our other camping grounds also being options. Attendees also spoke to us about enjoying their time visiting the Rail Journeys Museum at Werris Creek, the views from Who’d-a-thought-it lookout, Bob’s Shed and the Quirindi Heritage Village. Others mentioned the feeling of real rural Australia they experienced driving from Premer and Spring Ridge to Quirindi,” she said.
“The important thing is people have enjoyed and are talking about these experiences. There is no doubt that word of mouth endorsement is one of the best promotions for our area when they share those experiences with friends and other RVers and travellers,” she continued.
“I’d ask everyone to keep in mind we all have a role to play in making visitors feel welcome, so they want to come back, share more time with us and pass their good experiences on to others,” Nikki concluded.
