Paul Neubecker, the principal of CQConnections, is looking forward to transporting Conference guests to and from venues and touring the Rockhampton districts. Having grown up in Central Queensland, Paul knows the best places to visit and has a sound knowledge of the tourist sector.
“For most of my life, all I wanted to do was travel the world and work in hospitality”, Paul said .
“My entire focus is on building a company into something that the region has never seen before, with a fleet of buses and vans to accommodate any size group. I have built a relationship with both main tourism bodies in the region, Advance Rockhampton and Capricorn Enterprise.”
Also part of the CQConnections team is Kylie Johnston, a descendant of Australian South Sea Islanders and of first nations people, Bailai (Byelle), whose lands run from the mouth of the Fitzroy at Keppel Bay, south to Gladstone and the mouth of the Boyne River, and inland to Mount Morgan.
Kylie grew up in Emu Park and attended schools on the Capricorn Coast and is a driver with the company.
