Burdekin residents are being urged to get behind two local finalists in this year’s Townsville Airport North Queensland Tourism Awards.
Burdekin Shire Mayor Bill Lowis said the Burdekin Tourism Association and the Alva Beach Tourist Park were both vying for the Southern Cross Austereo People’s Choice Award.
“It would be a real bonus if one our local entries won this award and the only way for them to win is for residents to cast their vote on Facebook,” he said.
“The Alva Beach Tourist Park is one of the region’s most popular caravan parks and the BTA volunteers do a fantastic job of selling our region’s tourism spots to the thousands of visitors who pass through.
“To make it easy for residents to vote we have put a link on the Council’s Facebook page, so let’s all get behind our local entries.”
The winner will be announced at the 2013 Townsville Airport North Queensland Tourism Awards on Friday, October 18.
