Welcome to Noosa badgeLast night our resort team attended the unveiling of Tourism Noosa’s much anticipated Welcome to Noosa initiative. Together with 250 other Tourism Noosa members, we witnessed the beginning of a new era in customer service for Noosa. Wow!

In an effort to ensure that Noosa visitors are greeted with warmth, friendliness, enthusiasm and professional service, and to meet the expectations of todays’ discerning travellers in a competitive tourism environment, Tourism Noosa has now created an innovative tourism training initiative that aims to revitalise a quality service culture throughout the industry and boost Noosa’s reputation as a premier holiday destination.

Welcome to Noosa, is about not just meeting the expectations of our guests but exceeding them and proving to visitors that Noosa is a world class destination to visit again and again. The program is basically an easy-to-use online training program that helps Noosa’s customer service industry to build stronger businesses and deliver a memorable experience for visitors to Noosa and local customers alike.

We loved that Celebrity chef Pete Evans was the special guest at the launch and is the face of the campaign…a perfect ambassador. His whole life is about customer service and of course he loves Noosa and is a regular visitor here. What’s not to love!

We are all looking forward to completing the program so next time you’re in Noosa, look out for these badges which indicate those of us who have completed the program and are now Welcome to Noosa ambassadors.

Christmas came early to Noosa this year.  To be specific it arrived at 10 am on Thursday the 6th of December via the Minister for Local Government.

The Christmas present Noosa received is; a vote in March 2013, for the right to regain a Noosa Council. Noosa residents have finally received the opportunity to determine for all time Noosa’s future.

So what’s the big deal?

Here it is in a nutshell……

In previous eras Noosa’s critical town planning (and all other council decisions) were controlled by their own local council made up entirely of Noosa people.
Then, in 2008, against massive opposition the Queensland government brutally forced amalgamation on 97 local government areas including Noosa in the name of “cost efficiencies”.

Noosa was forced to become part of the Sunshine Coast Council – a super city incorporating areas as far south as Landsborough, and areas such as Maroochydore and Mooloolaba which aspire to be cities in their own right and who share very little lifestyle values with the people of Noosa. The seat of council was relocated to Nambour and Noosa residents were hit with rate increases and loss of services and representation.

Noosa has always chosen and fought for many decades for a different model. It is based around low level, low density development. It insists on round-a-bouts instead of traffic lights, and very subdued advertising signage. It has height restrictions of four storeys along Noosa Main Beach. It does its best to be a low stress area with minimal invasive city symbols ie. no parking metres. It is a place that has chosen not to become part of the mediocrity of urban sprawl that makes up so much of Australia. It is truly a special place and because of the community’s long-standing commitment to conservation, sustainable development and lifestyle protection Noosa is now a UNESCO-recognised Noosa Biosphere Reserve.

Over decades the Noosa community has proven itself eminently capable of administering its own region. It has earned the right to continue to do so.

This model is the reason visitors from across the globe are attracted to live and holiday in Noosa and this is the reason land values are amongst the highest in the country. Under the current amalgamated super council, Noosa is losing its way ….fast, unable to uphold the values and vision for which it has fought to retain for so long.

So, thanks to some passionate, hardworking and committed local people, Noosa now has been given a chance to take control of its destiny once again. “After many years of effort we will get a chance to decide whether we want a local Council making local decisions after listening to what residents want.” “We will get a chance to vote against becoming a city, with high-rise, paid parking, over-development and the crime and congestion that go with it. “If the people vote in numbers of more than 50% in favour, Noosa may be able to reinstate a council which has over generations proven to be cost effective and visionary.

If the people vote to stay part of the super council it will only be a matter of time before Noosa’s only 2 councillors are overwhelmed by the huge majority of councillors focussed on growth and development at all costs….and this special part of the world will soon become eroded and just another mediocre ‘suburbia by sea’.

If Noosa people get it right in March, you and your family should be able to enjoy Noosa for generations to come.

Merry Christmas Noosa!  May all your wishes come true!
