Pod packs to help businesses dress up for whale festival

TORQUAY'S AquaVue is one of the first businesses to sign up for a pod pack to dress up the cafe and get into the spirit of the whale festival.

Fraser Coast Regional Council tourism portfolio councillor Stuart Taylor said event organisers developed the Home of the Humpback Pod packs which include caps, event poster, festive bunting handmade by the Hervey Bay Quilters and two tickets to the Pavilion by the Pier for the Migaloo Starlight Swing on August 31.

The pod packs, which cost $199, are available from Fraser Coast Opportunities marketing officer Brad Nardi on 1300 794 929 or can be ordered from the festival website www.herveybaywhalefestival.com.au.

"It's fun to get into the spirit of the festival and help promote the festival," AquaVue owner Larry Burch said.

"The festival is important to the Fraser Coast.

"It reinforces our claim to being the whale watch capital of Australia and supports an industry that brings tourists to our region."
