Media release: Give your feedback on the Gympie region story

8 June 2018

After collecting over 600 responses from Gympie locals and visitors, the draft ‘Gympie region story’ is ready for review.

Last month locals and visitors to the region took part in a survey about the region, with the results shaping a national marketing campaign designed to boost the profile of the Gympie region.

Responses were collected via online survey, telephone interviews, street vox-pops and co-creation workshops. Interviewees were asked questions about what makes the Gympie region special.

The final ‘story’ represents a region that is hardworking, driven by a pioneering spirit and a place to ‘live the simple life’.

Council are now asking for final feedback on the draft story. All thoughts and opinions are welcome!
