When you ask locals and visitors what makes the Western Downs region so special, the answer is usually the same.

It’s the people that make it.

In 2020 Western Downs Regional Council embarked in a bold initiative to consult with industry, stakeholders, residents and visitors across the region to discover what they think makes it a great place.

The results overwhelmingly pointed to one conclusion, that even a region rich and diverse in spectacular natural attractions and unique experiences, it’s the people that they fall in love with.

Expert consultants worked carefully to create an identity and a brand which captures the qualities of the people of Western Downs:

Spirited | Charming | Down to earth | Outdoorsy | Hard working

GET INVOLVED

At the centre of this campaign is an understanding that it’s the locals, the businesses, event committees and community organisations that make the Western Downs a vibrant and attractive place to visit and therefor they deserve some ownership of this new tourism brand. Over coming months Western Downs Regional Council will work with and support our businesses and groups to become involved with this brand.
