By Cobram Courier

Moira Shire will be on show during Discovery Weekend on July 27 and July 28.

Across the weekend, residents can enjoy local produce, paddleboat rides, coffee, historic tours and more — all for just $1.

Moira Shire Council Mayor Libro Mustica was looking forward to the weekend and encouraged all residents to save the date.

‘‘The Discovery Weekend is part of the Friends and Relatives Campaign, which aims to showcase our region to locals who often act as tour guides, showing off our very special part of Sun Country on the Murray to their visiting family and friends,’’ he said.

‘‘This weekend is a great opportunity to explore our own backyard and tourism operators from Bundalong to Barmah have got on board and are offering attractions, products and experiences for just $1.

People just need to hang onto the special ticket and brochure which will come in the mail to use on both days of the Discovery Weekend.

Show the ticket at participating venues and enjoy mates rates all weekend. There are prizes on offer for residents who collect four stickers on their ticket at participating venues.

The prizes, valued at $1500, comprise two nights’ accommodation at RACV Resort Cobram plus a three-hour sunset dinner cruise for four people aboard the MV Paradise and a Locheilan Cheese triple cream brie ring; a two-night accommodation voucher from The Sinatra Waterfront Holiday Homes, Mulwala, and a two-night cabin stay at the Numurkah Caravan Park.

People just need to return completed tickets with its four stickers to local visitor information centres before Saturday, August 10.
