An enthusiastic group of Central West Tourism operators participated in the last month’s  ‘What’s Your Story – Storytelling Workshop.  The workshop was developed as part of the Central West OQTA Tourism Development Action Plan.   The purpose of this workshop was to assist operators to reinvigorate and develop stories to attract new and repeat visitor markets.  The interactive workshop activities allowed operators to explore and build on themes which aligned with the themes identified in the Outback Queensland Tourism Opportunity Plan.
