Our stations provide listeners (both travelers and locals) with the information they require about things to do and the unique products and services available in the area. In so doing, we highlight aspects of each region, with information and anecdotes on the history, industry, attractions and talents of the people of the region. We believe that by featuring local people on our programs, both yarns and musical talent, that local West Australians will be attracted to listen and can be encouraged to holiday in their own backyard.
The radio service is promoted with roadside signage, signage at tourist venues and on tourist maps and brochures as well as via this site. By allowing the service to become the mouthpiece of the local tourist industry we believe that the industry players will have a vested interest in the promotion of the service. As a result of our focus on attractions (our radio programs don’t carry accommodation information, instead advising listeners where to find the local visitor information centre) hotels in the South West are now using our service as a part of a Visitor Information Channel on their TV systems. The better informed visitors are about the local area, the better their experience and the longer they stay.
Our programs “tell the stories of people and places in Western Australia” via radio on 87.6 FM in East Perth, Bunbury, Busselton, Dunsborough, Cowaramup and Augusta and online.
