Flying the flag with new banners for museums and markets trail

FLYING THE FLAG

IN BRIEF

BANNER DAY

A new set of banners have been unveiled for the Museums and Markets trails using funding from the Bushfire Community Resilience Economic Recovery fund.

The aim of the project was to have common waypoint signage for each of the Museums and Markets to develop a trail for tourists visiting the region.

The signage helps to better link each of the attractions and encourage multiple visitation across weekends and open days.

The Visitor Centre is looking to highlight new walking trails, historical information and recreational pursuits to help extend visitors' stays.
