Chris Parsons

Board Director

Chris Parsons’ career began with an ad in the paper, “WANTED: TV Presenter, Gold Coast Lifestyle Show – must be presentable, have good communication skills and ability to remember lines”. Unsure of how many of those attributes he actually possessed, Chris drove down the highway and into a career that has become his absolute passion, TV. His career has seen him present and produce numerous episodes of popular travel shows ‘Queensland Weekender’, ‘The Great South East’ and ‘Creek to Coast’.

Chris has hosted numerous events and functions including the Queensland Tourism Awards, the Tourism and Events Development Conference, the Southern Queensland Country Tourism Industry Conference as well as many sporting events and festivals.

Chris can regularly be seen on ‘Queensland Weekender’ and hosting the National Lotto each week. He’s also the Ambassador for Bareboating in the Whitsundays, commentator for the Queensland Ocean Swim Series and a Board Director of Southern Queensland Country Tourism since 2017.
