A new marketing strategy is hoping to promote the attractions of Queensland, Australia.The state has launched its first tourism brand – Queensland, Where Australia Shines, in a bid to generate more visitors and create overseas interest.

It is expected that social media, a new website and an investment of AUS$4.16 million (£2.55 million) over the next two years could encourage people to hop on flights to Queensland as they become more aware of the region’s sights and sounds.

Queensland premier Anna Bligh explained that the region is “a beautiful Australian holiday destination, with unforgettable experiences”.

The minister for tourism, Peter Lawlor, added that he believes the development of a new logo will play a key role in enabling the local tourist industry to grow and become more innovative.

Queensland welcomes around 2.1 million visitors each year and offers a host of attractions including the Great Barrier Reef and the Gold Coast.
