While many are back at work this morning, the bustling tourism, hospitality and entertainment sectors are banking on visitors sticking around

The School Year doesn’t start until late January, with many hoping a booming Christmas and New Year period will continue through the next four weeks to further help the industries crippled by COVID lockdowns

Some businesses are still feeling the impact of the disease with a fresh wave only slowly subsiding.

Tourism Greater Geelong and the Bellarine’s Tracy Carter urging visitors and locals alike to be patient with businesses that may be suffering from staff shortages due to illness 

“What we are asking visitors to do is plan ahead, and make bookings but also try and be a bit flexible while on holidays as well”

“Whilst there are still some challenges with staffing, businesses are doing really well and doing the best they can over the peak of the summer season” 

“There are great exhibitions and shows on at galleries and venues across the region as well”
