Following the recent easing of Covid-19 restrictions a number of Swan Hill visitor services are reopening next week.
The Swan Hill Regional Information Centre will be reopening on Monday, 1 June.
Swan Hill Rural City Council Economic Development Officer Teresa Lever said visitor services had taken a big hit with the COVID -19 restrictions and they are delighted to be able to open some services prior to the June long weekend.
“From Monday, 1 June the Swan Hill Region Information Centre will reopen from 9.00am for normal business hours.
“On the long weekend, the centre will restrict hours to 10am – 2pm on Saturday and Sunday,” she said.”
Ms Lever said the Visitor Services team had already received a number of enquiries from people that are travelling and many more intending to stay over the long weekend.
“It’s really important to support our local tourism industry and visitors to the region as they navigate the new landscape of holidaying in a restricted capacity.
“Prior to COVID-19 it was estimated that tourism would generate $104M for the June quarter across the municipality, so there is a lot of ground to make up,” she said.
Ms Lever said the June long weekend is the perfect opportunity to welcome families and friends that have not been able to visit recently.
