“The calendar will showcase iconic locations and the amazing natural views that many locals take for granted.

“The calendar seeks to bring more visitors to Gippsland to support local business; but it’s also a timely reminder for locals about the amazing opportunities that exist right here in our backyard.

“I encourage local residents to day-trip and take weekend breaks within the Gippsland region and to support local businesses and small communities.

“Remember every time you spend money in Gippsland you are helping to create more jobs for young people into the future.”
