What’s in it for YOU?
1. Say It
Have your say on what happens in Lakes Entrance tourism, business, infrastructure and events. Don’t let others control your business future, get involved and have your say!
2. BE HEARD
Lakes Entrance needs a United Voice in local Government and in Tourism. There is strength in numbers! If we don’t come together in large numbers and support each other, we’ll always be relegated to the bottom of the pile.
3. DESTINATION LAKES ENTRANCE
We need more visitors to survive the ‘off peak’. Every successful holiday destination needs a close-knit, united, vibrant and supportive community. Help make our town a town that travelers can’t resist. Don’t leave it to others.
