McIvor Times - - FRONT PAGE -

THE an­nual Heath­cote on Show Fes­ti­val wound up on Mon­day.

Or­gan­is­ers were de­lighted with the turn out and lo­cal trader re­sponse.

It is es­ti­mated more than 7500 visi­tors at­tended the tra­di­tional Queen’s Birth­day three-day fes­ti­val.

Heath­cote Tourism De­vel­op­ment pres­i­dent Peter Maine said the eco­nomic ben­e­fit to traders was an en­cour­age­ment for new tourist-re­lated busi­nesses to make Heath­cote home.

‘‘The feed­back from the winer­ies, restau­rants and other pro­duc­ers is that they have had a record num­ber of visi­tors and the av­er­age spend is also up on last year,’’ Mr Maine said.

‘‘This of course is a very good thing and it also in­creases aware­ness of Heath­cote as a year-round tourist des­ti­na­tion.

‘‘Ev­ery­one is a win­ner.’’
