Update on the council’s tourism activities

Four new smart tourism terminals will be rolled out during October in the city centre.

The terminals will be located at Wodonga Plaza, Wodonga Railway Station, Wodonga Library as well as an outdoor terminal in Junction Square.

As well as access to the Visit Albury Wodonga website, the terminals will include printed visitor guides and maps.

It follows the council’s decision in May to close the Visitor Information Centre and move to a digital presence while continuing to use the pop-up tourism information trailer at major events and invest in the VisitAW destination brand, and marketing and tourism initiatives with AlburyCity.

A review of the council’s wayfinding signage across the city will also identify several static tourism information points for visitor guides and maps.

The Visitor Information Centre will formally close on Friday, October 27.

The council will also look to improve signage and review parking limits for long vehicle parking in the city centre to accommodate recreational vehicles and caravans in the CBD.

A report presented to the August council meeting identified there was no council-owned land suitable to accommodate overnight parking for these vehicles in the CBD.

Wodonga does have an authorised overnight recreational vehicle parking area at Ludlows Reserve at Lake Hume.

There are also three commercial caravan parks in the municipality that offer caravan sites and a dump point as well as a low-cost option at the showgrounds.

Wodonga Council recently launched the WotsOn Wodonga app to keep residents and visitors up-to-date on roadworks updates, an events calendar and parking maps for the CBD as well as local business offers and promotions.
