New tourism app to inspire visitors

EAST Coast Tasmania Tourism has launched a new Regional Tourism App.

With Tasmanian borders now open the app is seen as an essential and free visitor guide for holidaying on Tasmania’s East Coast.

“With all the information in the palm of your hand, get set to discover one of Australia’s greatest road trips – a journey that will lead you to places and moments that you’ll never forget,’’ ECTT chair Jen Fry said.
“Taking the first step towards a digital resource for East Coast Tasmania, the app will provide engagement, excitement, education and entertainment, with the vision in the future for personalisation using technologies like augmented reality to provide an enriching experience for visitors.
“The first release is just our beginning to capitalising on all that emerging technologies could offer.

“The app approach provides better user experience when travelling than an ordinary website, with the ability to use it offline, allow for greater flexibility to use your device features and also by receiving customised push notifications.
“We know that people love the unexpected experiences they have while travelling. This app will allow our East Coast Tasmania visitors to look up where they are on our interactive map and be inspired to try something out of the ordinary while travelling.”

The East Coast Tasmania app will allow users to:

• Plan their trip or search while on the road for things to do, where to stay, where to eat and more. You can even save your favourites businesses or places;

• Use the app and access information offline as no connection to the internet is required for most functions (once downloaded);

• Explore an interactive zoomable map with integrated directions; and

• Stay up to date with vital information like weather, emergency information and road closures.
