Capricorn Coast businesses get behind mooovement of beef

WHEN you venture around Yeppoon's CBD this week, don't be surprised if you see a cow or two, or a bail of hay in shop front windows.

As the region's biggest event kicked off on Monday, it's not only Rockhampton embracing the atmosphere of Beef Australia 2015, with members of Shop 4703 decorating their stores to celebrate the occasion.

And they encouraged all shop owners to get behind the mooovement too.

Member of Shop 4703 Suzie Hunting said it was about showcasing the Capricorn Coast for the thousands of visitors in town this week.

"We want them to know that we're welcoming them as well to our beautiful part of the world," she said.

"This is a great opportunity to promote our businesses to all of the visitors from all over the country and international guests as well."

Beef Australia will run until Saturday, May 9 and inject millions into the local economy, with almost all accommodation on the Capricorn Coast fully booked as a result of the influx of people travelling from all over to get to the week-long event.

Shop 4703 was established last year to give people a unique experience, while showcasing the great array of businesses on offer in Yeppoon through exclusive night shopping tours and events.

Their aim is to promote the Capricorn Coast through a "unique coastal shopping" experience to a variety of groups from travellers to fundraisers.
