Bright winter ideas
THE search is on for bright and warming ideas to ignite tourism across the Loddon over winter.
Loddon’s tourism and marketing co-ordinator Shelby Hutchinson wants local businesses to be part of the Bendigo tourism region’s Ignite Winter campaign.
She said Bendigo Tourism was looking for themed experiences and events over winter based around gastronomy.
“If you are looking to do a gastronomy-themed experience/event, please consider using local produce to further highlight the gastronomy region. Also don’t forget to consider partnering with other local businesses,” Shelby said.
“The more unique the experience, the better chance of exposure you will get from Bendigo Tourism.
Shelby said experiences in the Loddon could include lantern history tours of history trails, evenings featuring stories of wine making and tastings by a bonfire or partnerships with local hotels.
And Shelby said Loddon businesses could also look at partnerships with local artists.
