Gannawarra Shire is calling for people to step up and help promote Cohuna.March 24, 2014 4:01am
Gannawarra Shire residents are being encouraged to volunteer in Cohuna to help promote tourism and lifestyle aspects of the region.
The Gateway to Gannawarra Visitor Centre in Cohuna is the primary visitor centre within the shire, averaging 50 visitors a day, many of whom are travelling the Murray Valley Hwy, heading to destinations further afield.
Economic development manager Roger Griffiths said Cohuna was a great catchment for visitors, with the centre, garden park and main shopping precinct all close.
‘‘The centre provides a great opportunity to educate visitors and tourists alike to what the wider Gannawarra Shire can provide in terms of business, lifestyle and recreational activities,’’ he said.
‘‘It encourages visitors and travellers to seek out places such as Koondrook and Kerang.’’
Volunteer positions are available mid-week and weekends and council will provide training.
