More than 100 tourism buyers and international trade media dined out on the Scenic Rim, when they were helicoptered to Kooroomba Vineyards and Lavender Farm for lunch in December.
The international visitors were from China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, New Zealand, the USA and the United Kingdom and were in Australia for Dreamtime, Australia’s largest trade-marketing events showcase.
The event was held in Brisbane and the Scenic Rim visit provided the international tourism buyers with an opportunity to experience the region first-hand and understand what the region has to offer.
The buyers and media enjoyed spectacular views of the Scenic Rim during their flight to and from Kooroomba.
Scenic Rim Mayor, Cr Greg Christensen, says it was a great achievement for Kooroomba Vineyards and Lavender Farm to be included in a nationally-significant event and would hopefully lead to an increase in the international visitation to the restaurant and farm, situated just outside Boonah.
