Werribee Visitor Information Centre continues to show how the personal interactions between Visitor Information Services staff and visitors promote their local tourism operators and can encourage visitors to stay longer and do more. Team Leader Diane Rampertshammer gives us an insight into one of their Pop Up services:
Fromage A Trois is a yearly event for cheese lovers! Set in the stunning surrounds of Werribee Park Mansion, Fromage A Trois takes visitors from farm gate to picnic blanket, with the best in artisan cheese and Victorian local produce. Werribee Visitor Information Centre was there and spoke to over 560 event goers promoting the local food offerings such as Shadowfax Winery, Wyndham Cache, Ramaes Café and Lounge at Wyndham Harbour, The Park Hotel and The Views at Werribee Park Golf Club. A surprise for most visitors was to learn Werribee is home to the premier Wyndham Cultural Centre, hosting a range of popular and diverse theatre. There was much interest in Essence Productions celebrating 21 years of interactive night theatre including shows “ What was that?” and “ Down at The Farm” at Werribee Park Mansion. It was a wonderful day and opportunity to showcase and entice visitors to explore Werribee and Surrounds for a return visit or weekend stay.
