AN experienced tourism manager has joined the Gunnedah Shire Council team to help bring Gunnedah to the rest of the world.
As one of her first tasks in the role, Nikki Robertson has been invited to speak about agritourism and the pilot project between the Liverpool Plains and the Office of the Small Business Commissioner at the Local Government Destination and Visitor Economy Conference this week.
She brings a lot of experience to the role. Before taking up her appointment as Gunnedah shire's tourism team leader, she managed the Liverpool Plains visitor information centre for eight years, helping build the Liverpool Plains as a destination, including the success story of sunflower tourism.
"This is a fresh challenge," she said.
"I can put to use everything I have learnt in the Liverpool Plains and expand it.
"Gunnedah has huge potential in tourism, particularly during this time when people are looking to holiday within Australia, and we have new attractions including the Dorothea Mackellar silo and the Rainbow Serpent.
"I am really passionate about tourism. I have travelled all over Australia, I love the country, and we have got so much to share here. I want the world to come and visit Gunnedah."
Ms Robertson was born in Switzerland, she has now lived in the country for more than 26 years and is happy to call this area home.
