Grampians, Wimmera and Mallee residents already know of the beauty, serenity and recreational activities that can be enjoyed at our local lakes and weir pools, however word is spreading with tourism growing in our ‘back yard’.

In Street Ryan’s report Wimmera Southern Mallee: Socio-Economic Value of Recreational and Environmental Water Trends and Insights 2016-20, visitors to lakes and weir pools were interviewed to collect valuable information on the economic and the social contribution made by our local recreational water bodies, with some 3000 interviews compiled each year.

This is the final year under this study which will also document the effects of coronavirus (COVID-19) on local communities and tourism. Findings will be available later in the year.
