The new Makana Tourism brand

Go Back

Tuesday, 15th February 2022

In efforts to communicate its new look and services, Makana Tourism will officially launch its new brand on 26 and 27 February 2022 through a celebration of its community, arts and culture, local cuisine, appreciation of its local attractions and so much more!


This comes after months of consultation and research and serves as a way to re-write the narrative after the region has faced an intense period with several businesses struggling or closing down and further the decrease of inbound international travellers during the Covid-19 period.


The launch will take place at one of the region’s popular attractions, The Monument in the form of a two day market. Expect a culture trip that will feature:


Delicious street eats and desserts

Craft beer and gin, and superb wine

Freshly brewed coffee

A variety of organic produce

Locally made arts and crafts

Beauty and thrift clothing

Vehicle displays

Live music and entertainment for children.


Please see below for event details.

Date and Times;

Saturday, 26 February 2022: 11am to 3pm

Sunday, 27 February 2022: 9am – 1pm
