Killarney encouraging tourists

TOURISM operators in Killarney are calling out to visitors that the roads are open, the sun is shining and they are ready for you.

Following two floods, Bev Ruskey, owner of Spring Creek Mountain Café and Cottages, said after two weeks without anybody at all due, she and other operators needed to see some friendly faces.

“The roads are open, the sun is shining, the mountain air has a freshness, the waterfalls are thundering and the countryside looks amazing,” Ms Ruskey said.

Ironically, the local Warwick Visitor Information Centre fielded enquiries from a staggering 1500 stranded travellers during the first round of flooding in December.

“It’s just a shame that we couldn’t corral all those visitors for a month, to then let them enjoy the sites and activities that the Southern Downs has to offer,” Ms Ruskey said.

This weekend looks set to be mostly warm and dry, although there may be some late afternoon thunderstorms.

According to Weatherzone, Warwick should be mostly sunny today with a top temperature of 34 degrees.

Tomorrow and Sunday temperatures should peak between 32 and 33 degrees, with the possibility of a storm.

Temperatures look like cooling down on Monday with a storm expected and the possibility of further rain throughout the beginning of the week.
