After a tough start to 2024, Tamborine Mountain businesses can look forward to getting back to business with the support of their local radio stations Rebel FM and the Breeze

Station Manager Cheryl Jowitt has offered the Tamborine Mountain Chamber of Commerce a radio advertising package on both stations, Rebel FM and the Breeze to use over a five-week period to remind people on the Gold Coast, across the Scenic Rim and Logan that Tamborine Mountain is open for business.

“It’s important to acknowledge the tremendous role that Tamborine Mountain plays in our region, not only for tourism but for locals as well. Many of our friends, family and staff live and work on the mountain and the devastation we experienced at the start of the new year was heartbreaking.”

Rebel FM and the Breeze stayed on air using backup diesel generators at our transmission sites across the Scenic Rim and at our studios at Helensvale on the Gold Coast with staff working 24/7 to keep the stations broadcasting.

Ms Jowitt says “The area has always been a favourite getaway for many Gold Coasters and now we can offer these businesses promotional support, so we start seeing people back on the mountain, spending money and supporting the local businesses who have had to shut their doors due to weather conditions.”

Tamborine Mountain was devastated by flooding in February 2020, then again in March 2021 and now less than two years later hit by the Christmas tornado storm taking out electricity on the mountain for up to two weeks, uprooting trees and wrecking homes.

The “Tamborine Mountain is open for business” advertising package is valued at over $15 000 and will start in 10 days on Rebel 994, Rebel 905, Breeze 100.6 FM and Breeze 92.1 FM.

Local businesses on the Gold Coast, Logan and Scenic Rim can take advantage of our once-a-year sale which is coming up on the 16th of February, 2024.  For more details, head to ONE DAY SALE on our home page.
