Roll Out the Welcome Mat and Reboot Our Visitor Economy
Council welcome the announcement of the reopening of some key local tourism sites and camping grounds.
Areas to reopen in the High Country near Mansfield include Craig’s Hut, Stirling Circuit Road, Razorback Hut and Howqua Hills Historic Area.
Camping sites along the Howqua, Jamieson and Goulburn River will also reopen, including Running Creek, Skipworth Reserve, Sheepyard Flat, Wrens Flat, Granny’s Flat, Tobacco Flat and Tunnel Bend Flat.
Visitors can also visit nearby Mount Samaria State Park, Strathbogie State Forest, Toombullup State Forest and Delatite Arm Reserve.
While fire authorities are still working to bring fires across the region under control, Mansfield Shire is entering into recovery mode and the reboot of our local visitor economy, so the hard work isn’t over yet.
Our Facebook post announcing the reopening of key locations reached over 67,000 people, demonstrating that visitors are looking to social media for information and are keen to return.
Mansfield Shire Council, in partnership with Mt Buller Mt Stirling Management Board, will be shooting new still and moving imagery next week to capture “business as usual” here in Mansfield Shire.
Mansfield Shire Council, TNE, Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) and the Victorian Chamber of Commerce & Industry (VCCI) are all strongly advocating for direct financial assistance and support to businesses and industry as a key measure for recovery.
