Achievement and acknowledgement

Wellington Shire Council Mayor Garry Stephens said having The Middle of Everywhere campaign recognised on a national stage was an incredible achievement and an acknowledgement of the hard work of Council staff in promoting the region.

"The Middle of Everywhere campaign pulls together all the amazing assets of this region that locals already know about, and showcases them to a much wider audience," Cr Stephens said.

"This nomination will help us to continue our push to entice people to consider The Middle of Everywhere when theyre looking at a place to visit or to live and invest."

Investment to economic development

Councils The Middle of Everywhere campaign is funded by the state and federal governments to be used in a way that would re-activate the region following the 2019/2020 bushfires.

Rather than spending the funding on just one area, the Council decided to invest in a strong economic development campaign to benefit multiple business sectors. The Middle of Everywhere promotes Wellingtons tourism, living, employment and investment opportunities.

As part of the campaign there have been 27 advocate videos produced, where local business people and others proudly talk about what a great place Wellington Shire is to live, play and invest.
