Welcome Mate


St George & Surrounds Matesong

Get Ready to Say ‘I’ll Be Your Mate’

Welcome Mate is an exciting new tourism campaign for the Balonne Shire which encourages travellers to stop, stay and play in the Shire for longer.

After a dry and bruising end to 2019, it has finally rained, and spirits in the Shire are on the rise.  The Balonne Shire is open for business and our residents are ready to provide you with the holiday of a lifetime.

We are putting the call out to our friends from the city to be our mates and consider a road-trip adventure to our Shire where life is fast or as slow as you make it.


Welcome Mate Promotion

As part of the campaign we are running a special Welcome Mate Promotion.

The first 500 travellers from outside our Shire to visit the St George Visitor Information Centre this year and say the phrase “I’ll be your Mate” will receive a Welcome Mate Pack. Limits apply (see Terms & Conditions below).

The Welcome Mate Packs include a $20 Buy Balonne Gift Card, exclusive discount vouchers, local merchandise and regional information.

See the Terms & Conditions for more details on the promotion.
