GoSeymour is ready to roll out the welcome mat, building a brand-new tourism campaign to highlight the attractive features of Seymour as the gateway to the Goulburn River and ranges.
GoSeymour is an initiative of Seymour Business and Tourism group and has partnership support with Mitchell Shire Council and the State Government, which is providing $50,000 toward the project.
With its array of activities, events and scenery, Seymour reflects Victoria’s natural appeal, which has been captured on a new website and banners featuring in Station Street.
The new interactive website will highlight the region’s places to eat, drink and stay.
The website will aim to be a one-stop mobile information shop for travellers to explore the region’s townships.
Eight new banners will also be installed atop flagpoles in Station Street with four slogans: Live; Invest; Visit; and Events.
The campaign encourages people to plan a visit to the Mitchell Shire in the future – when it is safe to do so.
Mitchell Shire Mayor David Lowe said while people couldn’t visit Mitchell Shire now due to COVID-19 restrictions, they could get ready to ‘GoSeymour’ when the time was right and safe.
“The GoSeymour team – they are doing a great job in highlighting the wonderful aspects of the town and its limitless opportunities to live and invest, and when the time is right visit and enjoy a strong events schedule.” he said.
GoSeymour president Stuart Locke said a community celebration and launch would be held at a later date.
“The focus of the GoSeymour campaign is to highlight what genuine attributes Seymour has to offer and continue sustainable growth across the region,” he said.
