“Leave the freeway and explore Moorabool Shire for a unique day out”, is the call to action after the release of a new touring map.
The map details various activities in the Moorabool Shire and has just been released to the public.
The brightly illustrated touring map includes various recreational themes of Moorabool, from local eateries, accommodation, to bird watching and heritage attractions.
Co-ordinator for Economic Development Andy Waugh said the map replaces last year’s version.
“This new touring map provides self-driving routes, walking tracks and breaks down the Shire’s key tourism offerings into themes: adventure, camping and caravan parks, falls and mineral springs, walking and hiking tracks, bird watching, fresh produce, eateries, specialities, look-out and heritage,” he said.
However, on the Moorabool365 facebook page post of the new map, a comment from one man noted that Millbrook, Bungaree, Navigators, Clarke’s Hill, Mt Wallace, Yendon, Bungal, Barkstead and Morrisons were not identified, “How about the smaller towns/locations?”, he wrote.
The free maps are available at the Visitor Information Centre (215 Main Street, Bacchus Marsh) or at Ballan and Darley council offices during business hours.
