How to connect with TEQ on social media

Do you have Queensland content that you want to share with the world? Here’s our "how to" guide to sharing and connecting with TEQ in social media:

  1. Notify your Regional Tourism Organisation (RTO) - TEQ works closely with Queensland’s 13 RTOs to identify content sources. Your RTO may be able to use your content too.
  2. Use the #thisisqueensland hashtag on social channels, or tag us in the image or caption.
  3. Tag your RTO, LTO and Australia for greater reach.

TEQ closely monitors the #thisisqueensland hashtag on social media channels. Share individual pieces of content through your own channels and use this hashtag, or tag us, to allow TEQ to quickly and easily share your content.

Your chances of being featured increases when you share this information with your visitors as well, so they can share their experiences with us too.

TEQ’s primary social media channels include:


The Visit Queensland, Australia Facebook page is a visual way of inspiring prospective travellers to take a Queensland holiday by featuring Queensland photography, videos, blog posts and event information.
