Tourism signs an idea says Mayor

SIGNS along South Burnett roads explaining what crops are what could be one way of educating tourists visiting the region Mayor Keith Campbell has said.

"There are tourists who see crops growing in the fields and they have no idea what they are,” Cr Campbell said.

"Farmers could put up a sign saying this is corn, peanuts, whatever.

"It would assist the people to have an understanding of the vast variety of crops that are grown in our area.”

Cr Campbell also echoed calls from industry experts at the Southern Queensland Country tourism industry conference for tourism providers to work collaboratively.

"Tourism operators in the region need to understand and value the necessity to work together so tourists can access some kind of tour or packaging.

"It's about having a collective approach.”

He said he saw tourism as a growth industry.

"There is just so much more to offer in the South Burnett,” he said.

"We have the observatory, we have the Bunya Mountains, wildlife.”
