Discovery weekend given green light

-

After a false start with the Victorian Lockdown, the much-anticipate­d Discovery Weekend will now take place this coming weekend August 14 and 15 albeit in a more sedate fashion.

Moira Shire Mayor Libro Mustica said residents will enjoy scrumptiou­s local produce, coffee, wine, golfing packages, cactus tours and more – all from just $1.

“However, with the border restrictio­ns still in place our NSW compatriot­s will not be able to attend and nor will Victorian residents be able to cross the border to visit some of those tourism businesses that were going to be a part of the original Discovery Weekend,” Cr Mustica said.

“We are committed to helping our communitie­s to not only recover from the continuing

COVID pandemic, but thrive, both economical­ly and socially, so we are determined to forge ahead with this wonderful weekend.

“It will be a fantastic chance for Moira residents to explore their own backyard.

“It is also a great opportunit­y to have fun experience, catch up with family and friends, and get out and about in our beautiful part of Sun Country on the Murray.”

Cr Mustica said unlike the original Discovery Weekend, this pared down version won’t involve prizes for participat­ing residents.

“We are still encouragin­g people to visit as many tourism businesses as possible though – their doors are open and they can’t wait to show you their produce and various experience­s,” he said.

“I want to take this opportunit­y to thank all the businesses who have put their hands up and continue to be a part of this weekend – your support and passion for our region is greatly appreciate­d.”
