Tourism is one of the mainstays of the region's local economy. Not only does it result in jobs, income and investment for local residents, it also contributes to the vibrancy of our local community. 

To enhance tourism locally, Campaspe Shire Council has developed a guide for new tourism operators called Starting Up Your Tourism Business in the shire. 

This 28-page guide provides business people with a checklist of important points to consider before entering into an existing tourism business or starting up a new one. 

With a huge range of opportunities across the shire, it is vital that those entering the industry have the information they need to help their business succeed. 

Topics covered in the guide include:

  • deciding to go into tourism
  • joining local associations
  • business planning and marketing your business
  • accreditation
  • tourism signage
  • industry networks.
