People interested in starting a business along the Tweed section of the Northern Rivers Rail Trail can now register their interest in joining the Rail Trail Partner Program.
The Tweed Shire Council and its tourism partner The Tweed Tourism Company are seeking to work with operators in commercial partnerships to offer a range of experiences to people using the rail trail. They are looking at business ideas across the board including:
‘Taste (food and beverage), Stay (accommodation), Move (travel and transport options), Explore (education and recreation), and Enjoy (entertainment and events),’ they said in a press release.
Manager Destination, Communication and Customer Experience Tiffany Stodart said adjoining landowners and businesses who want to be part of the region’s newest must-do experience should register their interest now.
‘We are ready to hear from our business community, adjoining landowners and those interested in making the rail trail a great experience,’ Ms Stodart said.
‘The opportunities are many – cafes and coffee, ice cream and gelato, gourmet hampers and picnics, bike hire and shuttle services, education, recreation and cultural tours and so much more.’
The Rail Trail Partner Program provides adjoining landowners and businesses the opportunity to progress to commercial partnerships to make the most of the economic benefits of the rail trail.
The easy-to-use online form requires basic business details, what type of experience businesses are offering, and a summary as to how they will align with the trail’s values of Discovery, Connection, Freedom, and Fun.
‘This call out for businesses to register their interest is aimed at attracting a wide range of operators, to ensure the rail trail provides quality guest experiences,’ Ms Stodart said.
