    Are you registered with ATDW ?

    With tourism being severely affected by the COVID-19 lockdown we need to make sure that our Tourism businesses are all registered with

    The Australian Tourism Data Warehouse.

    The best way to make sure your business is seen by anyone looking to holiday in our region. When your business is registered it will be seen by potential customers when researching for their next holiday or weekend away. 

    Visit Northern Tasmania and the George Town DAP group are after expressions of interest in the George Town Municipality to get your business signed up and how to maintain your business on this site.

    The North-East is filled with tourism businesses from accommodation, eateries, attractions and experiences yet only a handful of them are registered on ATDW’s online national tourism database.
    The database is free to sign up to and it posts your business details, including a direct link to your website, on all government run tourism website across the country.
    It's the best form of advertising you can do.
    Visit Northern Tasmania (VNT) CEO Chris Griffin said listing on ATDW will give businesses free exposure on over 100 travel websites including Tasmania’s official consumer website Discover Tasmania.
    “As we embark on recovery for the tourism sector it's important for tourism businesses to register on ATDW and the Buy Something Tasmanian sites to ensure representation within campaigns.
    “By creating a business listing on both platforms, a tourism business will be visible on VNT's new website www.visitnortherntasmania.com.audiscovertasmania.comaustralia.com as well as 100+ additional sites,” he said.
    New businesses who list will also be included in the bi-monthly Tasmanian Travelways print magazine and available to visitor information centres for bookings.
    For a more localised perspective listings on the North-East tab of VNT’s website will be automatically categorised under eat, drink, see and do, nature, shopping, stay, tours, events and itineraries.
    “Operators also have access to database statistics to see how many page views their listing receives through the ATDW network.
    “The entire service is completely free therefore there is no reason why businesses shouldn’t take the ten minutes to list.”
    To register your business, or to view or update your listing visit www.atdw-online.com.au.
    If you would like further help listing phone 1300 137 225.

    From Greg Dawson , George Town Councillor

    I am super excited to announce one of the projects I have been actively advocating for, for a number of years has finally been given the stamp of approval today by George Town Council. Described as a community asset that will activate a dormant site previously occupied by a surf lifesaving club. This project will add to the recreational and tourism offerings of the municipality. Council approves the development of the East Beach All Abilities Recreation Area through the funding from Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program provided by the Australian Federal Government.

    Finally we get to see the old Surf Club site redeveloped with wind and shade shelters housing bbq facilities and areas to sit and keep watch over our families as they swim, surf and enjoy the beautiful East Beach area. The redeveloped area will finally activate the beach access to those in our community with physical restrictions. Improved ramp access will be a key feature of the redevelopment. My thanks go to the General Manager and Staff of the council for making this happen.
