Welcoming Visitors Back To Moreton Bay0
‘Welcome back to Moreton Bay’ is the message locals wish to send to South East Queensland.
The campaign to ‘bring them back’ has begun as local tourism returns to our social calendar after weeks and months of isolation.
Brisbane locals and all South East Queenslanders are being encouraged back to the Moreton Bay region, to help reignite the local economy, a message echoed by Brad Flynn from the Redcliffe Chamber Of Commerce, “Come out and have a day here at the markets, go for a walk around the foreshore and buy from the local businesses here”, said Brad on Channel7 news.

Moreton Bay Regional Council is undertaking a big campaign to get tourism moving again in the region.
Moreton Bay Regional Mayor, Peter Flannery said, “We have over a $1 billion dollar economy based on tourism and we’re looking at really slingshotting that economy as much as we can”.
The Redcliffe Farmers and Artisan Markets, are a great way for Brisbane locals to spend a sunny Sunday morning strolling the picturesque foreshore and enjoying breakfast while picking up some local produce.
Aside from being a great day trip, local artisans and market stall holders have suffered event and market cancellations in recent weeks and would really appreciate the support from the community.
Dog Parks, playgrounds and barbeque areas will be reopened this weekend, along with dine in cafes and restaurants, however social distancing rules will still apply.
Mayor Flannery emphasised the importance of continuing to follow the rules through the slow transition back to normality.
“After being cooped-up at home with the kids, I’m just as excited as everyone else to get back outside and enjoy our free public amenities,” he said.
“Our residents have been among the best in southeast Queensland at abiding by social distancing restrictions over the past few months, and it’s essential that we keep that up.
“We aren’t out of the woods yet which is why you’ll see ‘Your Safety is in Your Hands’ signs up at facilities like playgrounds, public barbeques and dog parks.
In Moreton Bay, we have so much to offer all South East Queenslanders, so be sure to put the Redcliffe Markets on your local adventure calendar!
