Great guest speakers at August Meeting!

Don’t miss the next General Meeting of the Chamber on Monday 4th August from 5:30pm at the Eden Fishermen’s Club (in the upstairs Captains Table room).  Guest speakers this month will be Anthony Osborne, Tourism Manager at Sapphire Coast Tourism and his colleague Sarah Chenhall.

“It’s all about coming together for everyone’s success”, says Anthony about the future of our region with regard to business and tourism.  The August Chamber meeting will focus on the many opportunities arising from many years of strategic planning and actions at multiple levels as far as tourism development goes.

Get updates on key projects such as:

  • Cruise Eden – we already have several vessels booked into the Port of Eden from early 2015. What will this mean for your business and our region?
  • Whales! – Australian Geographic has named Eden as THE top destination in Australia for whale-watching. This is very significant recognition and will bring even more focus on the town and its surrounds.
  • Walking – yes walking – is the fastest growing tourism sector in the world. Learn what walks are available locally and what is being developed to encourage repeat visitors and extended stays.

P&O have also included 2 visits to Eden in their 2015 schedule with details to be confirmed.

Chamber of Commerce members and members of the community are all eagerly awaiting the commencement of work at the wharf which would indicate the wharf extension is about to kick off.  This will see large cruise ships able to come alongside for easy and safe passenger disembarkation.
