Airport social media wall

Residents of the region are being asked to welcome visitors at Rockhampton Airport by sharing their favourite images on social media.

A 6m x 2m digital social media wall has been installed at arrivals, and will be one of the first things passengers see when they come to Rockhampton.

Chair of Rockhampton Regional Council’s Airport Committee, Councillor Neil Fisher, said it was a great way to welcome people.

“Whether you’re coming home or visiting for the first time, seeing beautiful images of people’s favourite places is a fantastic introduction to the region.

“The wall really shows an authentic, firsthand experience of what our region has to offer. It displays what both residents and tourists see as the must-dos while here.

“Our region has gone through quite a transformation over the past few years, and this is a wonderful way to show it off. It’s about encouraging tourists to stay longer and giving residents a beautiful welcome home.

“So please, post your favourite images on Instagram using #visitrockhampton, and see your picture on display!”
