Presidents Report July 2019

This month’s business breakfast had over 120 people attend.  It was a vibrant event and encouraging to see so many people interested in Redlands Coast Tourism. 

This month I have several action items for you: 


The Chamber membership year has changed from December to the financial year, so later in the year we will send out a 6-month renewal.  Membership fees are frozen to 2021.

With the change of the Chamber year we will be having the next AGM on the 30th September.

Business and Retail (BaR) AWARDS  

Nominations are still open for the 2019 Redland Business and Retail Awards until the 16th August. If you haven’t entered, please download the entry from   


RedFest 2019 – this year we are doing a more information approach, with the object of RCCC being at Redfest to raise public awareness of the importance of the local business community and the correlation between successful business and sustainable communities.   

You don’t have to be there on the weekend to be involved so email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to find out more. 

Visitor Information Centre (VIC) 

The new Tourism Visitors Information Centre at Raby Bay (next to Hogs Breath) is open for business.  If you are interested in volunteering some time on a roster basis to man the centre on the weekend email This email address is being protected from spambots.

The VIC team are taking expressions of interest now and will look to setting up a volunteer option in a few months.  

Who better to tell visitors about our Naturally Wonderful coast than proud locals? 


Finally, I want to remind you to do something new locally and enjoy more of our beautiful Redlands Coast.  Visit the VIC and pick up a visitors guide to find out what you don’t know.  Try a new experience and enjoy where you live. 

We have so many great operators who can show you wonderful experiences on the water, islands or mainland.   

Foodies and those who appreciate a nice wine or flavoursome brew have a wide range of options with so many “hidden gems” right here in the Redlands.   

Look local and experience something new on your own doorstep. 

Yours in business
