ALBURY-WODONGA has always been recognised as a conjoined city.
Yesterday Wodonga and Albury mayors Cr Mark Byatt and Cr Alice Glachan added another link by launching a combined visitor’s guide at Gateway Island.
Cr Byatt said it was not a new concept, but it was great for both cities to be under the one umbrella so tourists and people from the area could use the guide far and wide.
“It gives the locals a better understanding of the people who come to stay and what they can do,” he said.
Cr Glachan said the guide gave the cities the opportunity to show what was on offer.
“This will be a betterment for the community,” Cr Glachan said.
She said the guide targeted the regional community and also was a way to advertise to people wanting to visit Albury-Wodonga.
“It’s logical and sensible to join them together so people are aware of the variety we have to offer,” Cr Glachan said.
Cr Byatt said half a billion dollars was injected into the area from tourists.
“This will help create support for businesses in the area and economy,” he said.
Cr Glachan said money from tourists circulated around the community leading to direct and indirect benefits.
“The guide will answer the question what can people do with their friends and families,” Cr Glachan said.
“Everybody will be able to experience the great things Albury-Wodonga has on offer.”
