Regional Victoria open for business this long weekend

25 /01/ 2013 Comments are Closed

Victoria’s peak tourism industry body is reminding visitors that, while bush fires are affecting some areas in Gippsland, many great experiences can still be had over the Australia Day long weekend.

Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) Chief Executive Dianne Smith says, “Regional Victoria has a lot to offer this long weekend, with an exciting array of events and attractions happening right across the state.

“Most tourism destinations in Gippsland and the High Country regions, including Wilsons Promontory, Gippsland Lakes, Bright and Mount Beauty, are accessible and preparing to welcome visitors.”

Major roads such as the Princes Highway, the South Gippsland Highway and the Hume Highway are open to traffic as usual.

“We encourage anyone with queries about their long weekend reservations to contact their accommodation provider,” says Ms Smith.

Ms Smith also said it was important to stay informed about local conditions when travelling around the state this summer.

“Check updates through the usual information channels including cfa.vic.gov.au, ABC Local radio, the FireReady app, the Victorian Bushfire Information Line (1800 240 667) or by visiting an accredited visitor information centre,” says Ms Smith.

“We wish all visitors an enjoyable, relaxing Australia Day long weekend in regional Victoria.”
