The Town of Miles in Queensland is Becoming a Tourism Drawcard
Shell QGC’s ‘Business Navigator’ program is helping new and growing businesses in Queensland’s Western Downs commercialise innovative ideas by connecting them to full-time business mentors.
The program, which partners with the Towoomba Surat Basin Enterprise, was developed following extensive community feedback. Communities in the Western Downs said supporting local businesses and building a strong, diversified economy was important to them.
A great example of the Business Navigator program at work can be found in the small town of Miles. Home to about 1,800 people, this small town has become a gem in the Queensland tourism industry, in large part thanks to Miles Historical Village. The village has recreated a period streetscape from the late 1800’s or early 1900’s.
Kylie Bourne, President of Miles Historical Village, says they’re excited about the future.
“We see this place as vitally important not only to our community from an economic and tourism, but to the region and to Queensland tourism”, she says.
Of the Business Navigator program, she says, “…we’re really excited about the support and advice that can be provided in helping us realise that vision and reality. That then, of course, benefits our neighbouring communities also.”
It’s another way that natural gas is naturally part of building Australian small businesses.
The historical village is a tourism drawcard for the small town of Miles in QLD, population 1,800. Shell QGC’s Business Navigators partnership is helping to market, promote and attract more tourists to this great location. 🌟 See what’s happening 📺 https://t.co/1vGQBS6n9o pic.twitter.com/ZIz9d7SLtb
