BUNDABERG played host to the Gladstone Mayor and her councillors on a trip aimed to strengthen ties between the two regions and investigate how they can work together.

Bundaberg Deputy Mayor David Batt said yesterday's visit came about after Mayor Mal Foreman and economic development manager Cameron Bisley visited Gladstone a few weeks ago to look at economic opportunities between the two regions.

Mayor Gail Sellers and the Gladstone councillors yesterday returned the visit.

"The aim is to strengthen our ties and relationships and chat about our cross border relationships and how we do things now together with things we have in common like the ports, disaster management and tourism and what else we can do," Cr Batt said.

"We chatted about a few things and we took them on a tour to the technology park, the Botanic Gardens, Hinkler Hall of Aviation and the port."

Cr Batt said Gladstone was developing a wetland area.

"So we took them to Baldwin Swamp and they loved it," he said.

"We want to build better relationships and take a collaborative approach..

"They've got a lot of businesses up there that we could support if they were looking at expanding."

The Bundaberg councillors will do a similar tour of the Gladstone region in the new year.
