Whether visiting, returning home or heading off on an adventure, patrons of the Emerald Airport won’t be able to miss the new eye-catching signage at the terminal building.
The makeover, which includes a series of images, is part of the first stage in a joint project between the Central Highlands Regional Council and the Central Highlands Development Corporation.
From mining and agriculture to national parks and a rich cultural heritage, the twenty-two photographs depict the diversity of the Central Highlands in a bid to enhance the visitor experience and community spirit.
The facelift also included new welcome signs and a ‘Love Central Highlands’ panel.
‘This project is all about creating a warm and welcoming experience for users of the airport,’ Mayor Cr Kerry Hayes said.
‘We want to showcase our unique lifestyle, all of the things that make the Central Highlands a great place to call home. But we also want to promote the fantastic tourist attractions in our backyard, the places you can take your family and friends to go see. It’s very much about the destination.’
The $14 000 council-funded project also includes upgrades to other external and internal signage, a brochure stand able to promote 60 local businesses, attractions or events, the installation of television and audio equipment at the baggage carousel, landscaping and more.
