Tourism Trea­sure Trail re­turns

The Free Press (Corowa) - - NEWS -

The Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil Tourism Trea­sure Trail will re­turn these school hol­i­days, fol­low­ing the suc­cess of the in­au­gu­ral trail last year.

Res­i­dents and vis­i­tors can trek their way around the Fed­er­a­tion re­gion, vis­it­ing many of the tourism hot-spots that fea­ture on the trail.

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil Ad­min­is­tra­tor Mike Eden said the trea­sure trail ini­tia­tive was an op­por­tu­nity to show­case some of the great things to see and do in the re­gion, as well as help drive visi­ta­tion to the Corowa re­gion.

“The trail encourages lo­cals and vis­i­tors to get out and about this win­ter, sup­port lo­cal busi­ness and cel­e­brate what the re­gion has to of­fer,” Mr Eden said.

“Last year’s in­au­gu­ral event proved a great hit and coun­cil’s tourism team is re­ally look­ing for­ward to again host­ing this much-loved event.”

Par­tic­i­pants are en­cour­aged to tick off as many ac­tiv­i­ties on the trail as they can and up­load a pho­to­graph to Face­book or In­sta­gram with a hash­tag #vis­it­coroware­gion for their chance to win one of six prizes val­ued at more than $1000.

Some of the prizes in­clude ac­com­mo­da­tion pack­ages, food vouch­ers and fam­ily movie pack­ages.

Mr Eden said the trail would run through­out the NSW and Vic­to­ria school hol­i­day pe­riod, which is from Fri­day, June 30 to Satur­day, July 16.

“Res­i­dents will soon re­ceive a Trea­sure Trail map in the post, which will cer­tainly build up some ex­cite­ment amongst school chil­dren in many lo­cal house­holds,” he said.

“Copies of the map are also avail­able at the Corowa Visi­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre, any coun­cil of­fice or li­brary and par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­nesses and at­trac­tions.

“Help us cel­e­brate what’s on of­fer by pro­mot­ing our re­gion and shar­ing your ex­pe­ri­ence on so­cial me­dia.”

En­try is free and pho­tos can be up­loaded any­time be­tween Fri­day, June 30 and Satur­day, July 16.
