RV Friendly Town Status for Manildra

 

Manildra has recently been successful in achieving RV Friendly Town (RVFT) status. RVFT is an initiative run by the Caravan and Motorhome Club of Australia (CMCA). An RVFT is one that happily provides amenities and services for the mobile traveller. The initiative promotes the partnership between the RV tourist and small towns, encourages the expansion of tourism related infrastructure and services, and promotes the economic advantage to small towns providing RV tourist specific amenities.

 

Essential criteria for a town to qualify as RV Friendly:

 

a)    Provision of appropriate parking within the town centre, including access to a general shopping area with groceries or fresh produce.

b)    Provision of short term (24/48 hour) parking for self-contained vehicles within the town precinct.

c)    Access to potable water.

d)    Access to a free dump point within the town precinct.

 

Desirable criteria for a town to qualify as RV Friendly:

 

a)    Provision of long term parking for self-contained vehicles.

b)    Access to medical facilities or an applicable evacuation plan

c)    Access to a pharmacy or a procedure to obtain pharmaceutical products.

d)    Visitor Information Centre (VIC) with appropriate parking facilities within a reasonable distance.

e)    VIC to provide a town map showing essential facilities such as the local hospital, medical services, fuel, shopping area, dump point, fresh water, etc.

f)     RV Friendly Town™ signs to be erected within the town precinct.

 

Manildra became eligible to take part in this initiative after the installation of the dump point (subsidised by CMCA) and access to potable water, completed in January this year. CMCA commended Council and the Manildra Showground Trust on the fantastic job that was done when installing the dump point, labelling it as ‘one of the best they have seen’.

 

Manildra is now one of only seven RV Friendly Towns in the Central West. Council will be provided with RV Friendly Town signs to be placed around the main entries to Manildra. Manildra will be promoted on the CMCA website and listed in the CMCA website RV Friendly Towns directory. Manildra will also be promoted in CMCA’s magazine, The Wanderer.

ACTING ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT MANAGER's REPORT

 

Wine of the Month

 

TP Action: 3.1.2

 

The Wine of the Month for May 2014 was Orange Mountain Wines – Mountain Ice Viognier made by winemaker Terry Dolle. Mountain Ice is a dessert wine that has won 2 International trophies and several medals.

 

Orange Mountain Wines stated they are very appreciative of Cabonne’s promotion of their business and product.

 

What’s On in Cabonne

 

TP Action: 2.1.1, 3.1.2

 

The Cabonne Country What’s On Newsletter for May 2014 communicated and assisted in promoting 19 events and activities for the month. The newsletter database continues to grow and attract interest. All events are listed on the Cabonne Country website.

 

The April and May editions were presented to the CCTAC meeting held on the 27 May 2014.

 

Cabonne Major Events

TP Action: 1.4.2, 1.4.3 and 3.6.3.

A number of successful major events were held throughout Cabonne during April 2014.

FOOD Week (April 4 – 13) was a great success with more than 50 food and wine events held in the Cabonne Shire.  The Molong 100 Mile Dinner attracted over 280 diners and showcased local produce and the region’s talented chefs.

The Canowindra Challenge and 19th National Balloon Championships (April 22 – 27) attracted significant interest from various regional media outlets.

This year’s Balloon event experienced record crowds, with numerous activities held during the week to captivate spectators. 

Accommodation bookings were at a premium with both the Caravan Park fully booked with 260 people and the Showground with 412 bookings over the period. Feedback from the organising committee stated that this year’s takings recorded over $50,000 from the Balloon Glow alone.

The Canowindra Balloon Challenge provided a significant boost to the local economy and the organising committee are to be congratulated on the success of the event.

 

Cabonne Country Tourism Advisory Committee (CCTAC)

 

TP Action: 1.1.3, 5.1.6,

 

Cabonne Country Tourism Advisory Committee meeting was held on 27 May 2014. The April meeting was cancelled due a clash of dates with Cabonne’s most significant event, the Canowindra Balloon Challenge 22 -27 April 2014.

 

The CCTAC minutes and report update will be included in the July Committee Meeting Report.

 

The committee supported a concept suggested by Cr Davison that Cabonne Council investigate a program to progressively paint buildings in the main streets of the Shire’s villages in heritage colour schemes.

 

The committee believed this would enhance Cabonne’s appeal as a unique heritage destination and make the villages more attractive.

 

The committee also suggested Council consider installing an interactive events calendar to its Cabonne Country tourism site, which would enable operators and organisations to update their own events details. The PTO will investigate the types of software available, the cost and whether they are compatible with the website.

 

Central NSW Tourism Update

TP Action: 5.2.2

Unearth Central NSW

The marketing campaign coordinator, Kathleen Drennan is currently calling for Food, Wine and Accommodation operators to partner and provide attractive packages that have the potential to maximise visitor and destination awareness. This provides a great opportunity for Cabonne operators to work together to market their business in the nine-month marketing campaign.

All contributors will be included on the website and be a part of a number of marketing initiatives.

 

Visitor Survey

Central NSW Tourism has requested all Regional Tourism Managers to participate in a Visitor Survey to assist in providing relevant information on visitor activity and interests.  The gathering of this reflective information will be helpful in applying for funding, reporting, identifying trends and confirming visitor interests and attractions specific to each LGA and then compiled to provide a State picture.

 

Cabonne’s PTO has distributed the visitor survey to five operators in the Shire – Age of Fishes Museum (Visitor Information Centre), Taste Canowindra (café/food provider), Molong Motor Inn (accommodation provider), Orange Mountain Wines (local attraction/cellar door) and Jayes Gallery (Museum/gallery/cultural or heritage attraction).

.    

The surveys are to be completed for one week in each quarter commencing May 12, July 14, October 13 and December 15.

 

NSW Tourism Awards

 

Entries for the NSW Tourism Awards are now open and Cabonne Country operators have been invited to apply and attend a workshop on this topic or apply for mentoring. Unfortunately no workshops have been scheduled for areas west of the Blue Mountains and local operators have commented on this lack of opportunity. However, all organisations and operators can log into online workshops via webinars.

 

Orange Region Destination Guide

 

TP Action: 3.4.1, 5.2.1 and 5.3.1

 

The development of a new Orange Regional Destination Guide incorporating Cabonne and Blayney is well underway.  PTO Lynne Hawkes is working with Orange City Council tourism manager Glenn Mickle to ensure Cabonne’s content and images are included and well presented. Graphic Designers VAADA have been contracted to develop the guide. The next meeting is scheduled for 4 June 2014.

 

Community Assistance

 

TP Action: 1.1.3, 5.2.5

 

Cabonne Council’s PTO has liaised and provided assistance to the following organisations/businesses to enhance tourism, promote events and raise awareness of Cabonne Country throughout the region and State during the month of May 2014.
