As usual when posting about things involving my employer: caveat emptor, see the disclaimer in the sidebar, yada yada etc…

There’s quite a few cool things happening over at Tourism Queensland lately… not least of which is our current Facebook campaign, “Passport to Shine”… which is yet another part of the launch of the new branding “Queensland, Where Australia Shines”. Suffice to say, it’s pretty damn cool, and you should head across that way to check it out.

Another pretty cool thing that’s happening at the moment over there is our current foursquare promotion. Tourism Queensland and foursquare have released the limited-edition Shine Seeker badge, and – again – great holiday prizes are up for grabs for those who manage to unlock the badge. Regardless of whether you go in for badges or not, I’d suggest you check out our foursquare page anyway… there are some really cool tips of things to see and do around Queensland… even for us locals!

If you’re one of the 50 to check in and help us unlock the badge, come and find us there… if you’re one of the first 50 to find us, we have real life “Shine Seeker nerd badges” for you to proudly wear and proclaim your geekiness… so come along, will ya?

All details can be found here, but in a nutshell: this Thursday, 21 October, between 8 – 9am, Queen Street Mall. Be there, or be square. Actually, be there AND be (four)square.
