Here at OnlyFraserCoast.com.au we exist to connect our local community with locally owned businesses to stimulate and grow our economy. There are many other reasons why we exist but to connect and stimulate our local economy is our primary reason, and we’ll try and explain more about this below.
Why is it so important to connect our community?
Here on the beautiful Fraser Coast whilst we love the seclusion, we’re also often heavily reliant on tourism to bring new customers. Retailers are often so heavily reliant on tourism, that if we don’t have a great season, we’re stuck. When tourism is great, everyone wins however we can do something to help retailers and grow our economy all year round, not just in peak periods.
The more our community connects, everybody wins.
Our ethos is through community connection, everybody wins. Every coffee, lunch, house built, trade or service business contracted, it means another Fraser Coast family can help provide and re spend back into the community. Here at OnlyFraserCoast we want to help stimulate our economy for everyone, every day of the year.
Through community we strengthen and grow
It’s not all business, we’re also passionate about community connection through events, things to do and local awareness. Promoting local events to locals and tourists alike means the more we engage, the stronger we become.
One of the most proud events we run is our FREE BBQ breakfasts. We are currently working through council to offer free bbq breakfast in both Hervey Bay and Maryborough every 2 weeks. Read more about that here.
