Bulloo Shire Council
Erin has worn many hats in her career so far but has found her passion in the tourism industry which she believes can turn any idea into long lasting experiences and memories. From sheep judge to ranger, machine operator and then events and tourism, Erin has managed to pack many diverse experiences into her career so far.
Following high school, Erin undertook a Certificate III in Rural Operations and a Certificate III in Conservation and Land Management and became a Trainee Ranger with the Central Queensland Regional Council. Her role entailed customer service, maintenance of stock route water facilities, assisting with animal welfare and restricted flora/fauna and promoting responsible pet ownership to school students. Erin’s next move saw her working in remote areas as a machine operator on road worksites before being presented with the opportunity to move into the tourism industry.
Erin joined the Paroo Shire Council as its Events and Tourism Officer and hit the ground running organising her first event – the Cunnamulla Fella Roundup – just three weeks after starting in the job. Her role entailed planning and implementing major events for the region, digital marketing and developing relationships with stakeholders to expand tourism opportunities. Erin now works as the Tourism Services Officer for the Bulloo Shire Council, assisting with developing marketing campaigns to promote Bulloo Shire as a destination, planning regional events and operating the Thargomindah Visitor Information Centre.
