Rockhampton makes it into top 10 wotif QLD holiday top spots

THE Easter holidays proved to be good business for Rockhampton after it was named one of the top 10 Queensland destinations by wotif.com.

Capricorn Enterprise chief executive officer Mary Carroll yesterday said Rockhampton was always a popular choice for holiday makers.

"Rocky has consistently ranked in the top 10 of Wotif bookings on-line," she said.

"Our destination is always a popular choice for Easter school holidays with many regional visitors coming from the 400km radius as well as travellers up and down the Queensland coastline.

"On-line bookings for accommodation, tours and attractions is growing at a rapid rate and part of our role in partnership with Tourism Events Queensland is to host digital workshops for our operators to ensure they're up with the latest on-line trends."

Wotif.com Australia general manager Joachim Holte said despite the unpredictable weather leading up to Easter, holidayers opted for a getaway near the coast and in tropical regions.

"The Gold Coast held the top Easter holiday spot in Queensland this year and ranked third nationally, only beaten by Sydney and Melbourne," Mr Holte said.

"A lot of people waited until the 11th-hour to make their Queensland Easter booking, probably to see what Mother Nature had in store."
