Shire signs MoU with Goulburn River Valley Tourism

Murrindindi Shire Council has endorsed the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Goulburn River Valley Tourism (GVRT) for one year.

Mayor Charlie Bisset said council recognises the partnership with GRVT and its support of our tourism businesses.

“Council has benefited from working together with the City of Greater Shepparton, Mitchell Shire and Strathbogie Shires, to strengthen our ability to attract visitors to our region,” Bisset said.

“There is a full program of events and activities ready to be delivered over the coming 18 months including the continued ‘Heart of Victoria’ campaign and these will deliver benefits for our tourism-related businesses.

“In the meantime, we are aware the State Government is reviewing its regional tourism arrangements as the current agreements generally conclude in 2019,” Bisset said.

“This gives us an opportunity to monitor and respond to any changes and also to engage with our own Shire’s tourism and events community to get a better sense of what our own future needs will be.”

Bisset said Council is expecting a report in early 2019 for its consideration, which will provide the basis for a decision by Council about the best options for future tourism partnership arrangements for Murrindindi Shire tourism businesses beyond mid 2019.

“We can then build this into our Shire’s long term tourism and marketing strategy,” she said.
