GoSeymour, you better be ready

There is no time like the now to plan for a future visit to our shire and when it is safe to do so all roads will be going to Seymour.

GoSeymour is ready to roll out the welcome mat building a brand-new tourism campaign to highlight the wonderful features of Seymour as the gateway to the Goulburn River and Ranges.

With its array of exciting activities, events and scenery, Seymour reflects how magical Victoria truly is and that beauty has been captured on a new website and banners that will feature in Station Street.

The brand-new interactive website will highlight the region’s great places to Eat, Drink and Stay. The website will be aimed to be a one-stop mobile information shop for travellers to explore our townships.

Eight new banners will also be installed atop flagpoles in Station Street with four slogans:

  • Live
  • Invest
  • Visit
  • Events

GoSeymour is an initiative of the Seymour Business and Tourism group and has partnership support with Mitchell Shire Council and Victorian Government, who is providing $50,000 toward the project.

A community celebration and launch will be held at a later date, when it is safe to do so.

Comments from Mayor David Lowe

“While people can’t visit us right now, they can certainly get ready to GoSeymour when the time is right and safe,” he said.

“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.”

Comments from GoSeymour president Stuart Locke

“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.

“We want our region to realise its great potential. It’s about showcasing our strengths, so more people come to Seymour and our shire. We have so much going for us and we want to share it. It truly is a great place to live, visit and invest.

“Seymour is here. When you are ready come and see us.”
