Stawell visitor information finds new home after Picker’s Market closure.February 2, 2020
Visitors to the Northern Grampians will be able to find out information and history of the region from a new location at the Pleasant Creek Historical Precinct in Stawell.
Council, in partnership with Grampians Tourism, has moved all the tourist information assets and displays that were housed at the Picker’s Market to the Gallery at the precinct.
The move of the information assets, including maps, brochures and displays comes after Peter and Anthea Perry announced the Picker’s Market would close its doors for the last time this weekend.
Northern Grampians Shire Council Mayor, Murray Emerson, said the Picker’s Market will be missed by the people of Stawell and visitors who would stop in for a chat.
“It’s a shame the Picker’s Market will be closing their doors, Mr and Mrs Perry have been cornerstones of the community for many years. I wish them the best of luck with their future plans and thank them for their years of service to the community,” he said.
The doors of the Gallery will be open as many days as possible with a selection of Grampians Tourism staff being based there to help tourists and travellers find their way.
