Magnificent 360-degree videos of our tropical region will take visitors on a virtual tour of the destination and leave them wanting more.
“This 360-degree technology, which is best viewed on a tablet or smart phone, is ideal for promoting a destination as spectacular as Tropical North Queensland as it brings our magnificent natural scenery and experiences to life,” De Waal said.
“We’re confident that taking people deeper into the Great Barrier Reef, connecting them with the Wet Tropics Rainforest or sharing our enviable tropical lifestyle will create a stronger desire for the destination and encourage them to consider Tropical North Queensland for their next holiday.
The locations featured in the videos include Wongaling Beach, Dunk Island, Millaa Millaa Falls, Nandroya Falls, Curtain Fig Tree, Palm Cove’s esplanade and the famous Agincourt Reef.
Phil Warring, from Phlipvids, also created the suite of six videos on the Great Barrier Reef, Port Douglas, Palm Cove, Mossman Gorge, Atherton Tablelands and Dunk Island. He was a finalist in the Tropical North Queensland Young Achiever Excellence Awards.
“The videos will be showcased on the Tropical North Queensland’s Facebook page and YouTube Channel and shared with Tourism and Events Queensland, Tourism Australia and the local businesses and destinations featured in them.
“Tropical North Queensland has a highly-engaged Facebook audience of more than 168,000 people from all over the world and we anticipate more followers as word about the incredible immersive views of our destination spread.”
