It’s been a long time coming but we have finally opened up our blog to guest posts by other bloggers, students, retiree’s and really just any aspiring writers!

Who can submit content to our website?

ANYONE! We accept stories from anyone, no matter your age*. Articles just need to be well written (grammar and spellchecked) and follow our writing guidelines outlined below. We love to share stories on everything from local history to cycling, art, water sports, ‘Top 5 Cafés in Redcliffe’, hiking adventures, road trips to your ‘Day in Dayboro’!

If your nervous about starting (we understand that you might have a great experience to share, but have never published before), just drop us an email at info @ visitmoretonbayregion.com.au with your article idea and we can give you some ideas on how best to present the article for publication!

*Please note, if under 18 years, we will require parental consent to publish, especially with images. We also offer Volunteer, Student Internships and Work Experience Placements for those looking for industry experience in the tourism and digital marketing industries. Just give us a call to find out more.

Writing Guidelines:

AUTHENTIC - The article submitted must be your own original work and not published on any other website. Google doesn’t like it and we listen when they talk.

WORDS - Stories are to be a minimum of 600 words please, however if complimented with a video (youtube link or original file) a minimum of 400 words is OK. Content MUST be focused on experiences etc from the Moreton Bay Region. Content from outside of region will not be published.

Please understand that this is to be editorial, NOT AD-vertorial. References to specific businesses in the region must be limited, unless the business referenced is profiled on our Visit Moreton Bay Region website, which makes them one of our tourism partners. We love to support these local tourism operators, so write away!

IMAGERY - We require 1 landscape photograph to be at least 2200px wide for the feature image (please do not watermark). In addition you can also supply:

  • Landscape photographs that are 1200pix wide. Please no portrait photographs, they don’t display well on our website. Please do not watermark images, we will link to you. We don’t accept photo montages, if you have a DIY style article, just send us the images individually, we’ll do the rest!
  • Video’s, or embed codes for videos you’ve uploaded to Youtube.
  • Embed codes for photographs and videos on your Instagram account (they MUST be your originals and not reposts from another user).

SOCIAL COURTESY – We ask that you like our facebook page and use our hashtag #visitmoretonbayregion on any Instagram images you wish to submit with your content (it would be lovely if you followed us too!). This makes it much easier for us to tag your accounts when the story is posted to our social media platforms. Of course we’ll follow you back!

BIO - Please also send a profile picture of yourself and a short Bio including links to your social profiles and blog/website.
