Tourism Sentiment Index has ranked destinations around the world to uncover those that are truly most loved and the Scenic Rim placed number 50! This is another achievement and recognition of how great this wonderful region is, and that’s worth celebrating!!
The study examined 1.6 billion unbiased and unprompted online conversations, interactions and consumer-generated content pieces, to determine how people genuinely feel about the places they visit.
Scenic Rim Mayor Greg Christensen said this announcement is a fantastic accomplishment for the region.
“We are so proud to again be acknowledged for delivering outstanding visitor experiences that get people talking, sharing and recommending,” he said.
“You can’t beat word-of-mouth promotion, and our visitors are clearly loving the incredible experiences delivered so successfully by our tourism operators, businesses and communities.”
Being ranked 50 in the top 100 global destinations is the latest in a string of tourism accolades for the region.
“The Scenic Rim was named by global travel authority, Lonely Planet, as one of the top 10 regions to visit in 2022, recognised especially for the authenticity of our experiences and our people,” Mayor Christensen said.
“We are also proud to have four of our towns, Boonah, Canungra, Kalbar and Tamborine Mountain, currently competing as finalists in the 2022 Queensland Tourism Industry Council’s Top Tourism Town Awards. I urge everyone to vote for their favorite.
“To be recognised by an ever-growing list of international tourism organisations as a world-class destination is an incredible endorsement for our region which the whole community should be proud of.
“This achievement isn’t just for accommodation providers and tour operators, but everyone a visitor might interact with, from our baristas to service station staff, and our friendly locals saying hello, so I want to thank everyone in the Scenic Rim for making our region so inviting and a place that people love to talk about.”
