Over the Easter break, over three times the usual number of tourists visited local attractions within the Latrobe Valley.

Thousands of people braved undesirable weather during the holiday, camping at Walhalla, Lake Narracan and the Hazelwood Pondage.

Obviously the upsurge in tourist figures shows the Latrobe Valley is an important draw-card as a tourist destination, with Walhalla and Powerworks being the most popular attractions.

The number of positive comments left in the Tourist Information Centres show that there is plenty to see and do, and promotion of our local area is going strong with good results.
