Docklands is the place to be

Docklands is the place to be Image

It seems that Docklands is where everyone wants to be, if the response to a recent radio promotion is any guide.

Radio station Gold 104.3 FM  recently ran a competition for a night’s luxury accommodation in Docklands and the response hugely exceeded expectation.

The result is very encouraging for Destination Docklands, the precinct’s co-operative marketing group, which was behind the spring competition.

Executive officer Michelle Kemp said the details collected from entries would be added to a database which would be used for future Docklands promotions.

“Listeners were directed to Gold’s website through the week of September 13-17 where they could register to win one of four $150 vouchers from Harbour Town Hotel and a fantastic family break at Docklands valued at $1500,” Ms Kemp said.

Lisa Dillon from Avondale Heights was the lucky winner  of the major prize. She said it was “awesome to win!”

Lisa and her husband already spend weekends at Docklands when they have time off, enjoying the restaurants and shops. They also like to bring their nieces with them when they can.

“More people need visit the Docklands to discover everything it has to offer,” Lisa said.

Ms Kemp thanked Docklands businesses for generously donating the prizes.
