Eat See and Do Local

Just in time for the busy Christmas holidays, the popular ‘Eat See Do’ official visitor’s guide for 2019-2021 is out.

It’s jam-packed with a bunch of great things to experience right across our region, and it’s not just for those visiting, it’s a great tool for locals too.

There’s 116 pages of things to eat, see and do, ranging from popular attractions, fun activities, things that are off the beaten track and some real hidden gems… there’s things that even I didn’t know about, but will now put on the must-do list!

As we recover from the recent bushfires, it’s particularly important that we support our local businesses and shop local. They are the lifeblood of our community and really need the support of locals.

Small business is never easy at the best of times, it takes a lot of hard work, passion, dedication… and perhaps most importantly, patronage from locals.

Whether it’s taking a day trip in our hinterland, thinking twice about buying online, shopping Unique Boutique in Wauchope, going somewhere new for a bight to eat or being a tourist for a day, there’s just so many ways to support our local businesses.

So here’s my challenge to you, if you’re having a ‘staycation’ during the coming holidays, why not highlight a few things to do from your guide, get out there and Eat See Do local. Local businesses will love you for it, and I can guarantee you that you’ll experience something new… and fun!

The Eat See Do guide will be delivered to homes across our region this week, and if for some reason you don’t receive your copy, you can pick one up at our Council offices, the iKew Information Centre or the Visitor Information Centre at the Glasshouse.

You can also view the online version at portmacquarieinfo.com.au.

So come on everyone let’s all Eat See Do local these holidays.
