Mornington Peninsula Shire says its new Local Economy Booster Program will encourage residents to explore and enjoy their own backyard and give Peninsula tourism operators a much-needed boost. The program has been introduced as part of the shire’s $10 million recovery package and means residents aged 18 and older are eligible to receive a reimbursement of $100 a household for visiting Peninsula tourism attractions and accommodation during the off-peak season.

The reimbursements are available if more than $150 is spent on eligible expenses in one or more transaction and cover:
• Paid tours and experiences – tour operators offering regularly organised tours with a leisure-tourism focus organised by experienced guides. Examples include a fishing charter, dolphin swim, snorkel tour, kayak tour, guided walk, bus tour, food and wine tour, and experiences such as cooking workshops and masterclasses;
• Entry fees to attractions such as outdoor adventure parks, animal parks, museums, mazes, drive-in theatres and hot springs; and,
• Eligible paid accommodation such as serviced apartments, bed and breakfasts, cabins or caravans in holiday parks, cottages, private holiday rentals, motels, hotels, resorts, retreats and lodges.

“It’s so exciting to introduce this initiative,” said Mayor Despi O’Connor. “We hope it inspires locals to visit places here in their own backyard they might not have been to yet or revisit a favourite tourist attraction they know and love. Maybe even a staycation in another local town is on the cards. Our local tourism sector has been hit so hard and they need all the support they can get. We also have many grants available to local businesses and organisations – find these grants and more on”

Registrations for round one open today and close on Friday, October 22, unless allocations run out. The eligible period extends from October 26 to December 23 with a maximum of one reimbursement a household. The first 450 eligible applications will enjoy this offer in this first round. Criteria and applications are available online.
