About &/or contact Rick

My name is Rick Slater, I started 25 years ago. I love the region and am proud of my local and independent business and all the wonderful and interesting people, businesses, festivals and stakeholders I get to work with.

As an Internet person, I do tend to have a more ‘behind the scenes’ persona – but I get shit done, AND I am comfortable pointing out that always punches above its weight when its digital reach is compared to other destinations around Australia and the world!
