A new plan has been released with plenty of thought-provoking ideas for tourism in Seymour, Nagambie, Avenel and Tallarook.CHALPAT SONTI February 26, 2014 11:06am
What have a street festival in Tallarook, a conference centre in Seymour, an equine museum in Nagambie and a food and beverage retailer in Avenel got in common? They’ve all been identified as possible ways to draw more tourists to our region.
The Urban Enterprise draft destination management plan for Goulburn River Valley Tourism contains plenty of ideas for our region. Some are well-known and even well-worn, while others take a fresh look. But they confirm one thing — our tourism potential, which no-one could claim is anywhere near being fully exploited yet.
Four of the top eight Goulburn River Valley (the area covered by Mitchell, Strathbogie and Murrindindi shires as well as Greater Shepparton City) priority tourism-related projects are specifically in our area. These are the Seymour flood levee bank and riverfront precinct (number two), expansion of the Great Victorian Rail Trail at this end (four), redeveloping the Broadford State Motorcycle Sports Complex near Broadford (seven) and the provision of high-end accommodation in Nagambie (eight). Number six on the priority list affects us as well, with Nagambie and Avenel to benefit from any extra rail services north of Seymour.
