Hilltops Council launched their inaugural Hilltops region visitor guide last week with the aim of promoting the region to the rest of Australia.
Council Administrator Wendy Tuckerman said the 44-page guide positions the region as an ideal getaway for city dwellers.
"The guide shows them that if they travel to the region they will enjoy breath-taking landscapes, historic towns and villages, and an incredible array of food and wines," she said.
“For the first time, we have a visitor guide that comprehensively covers the entire Hilltops Region.
“It will encourage people not only to visit but to extend their stay, explore our unique towns and villages, follow suggested itineraries, and find out where to stay, drink, eat, shop, pick fruit and generally just explore.
“A total of 50,000 have been printed and we are delighted to say that it will be available across the Visitor Information Centre network in NSW and beyond as well as our Visitor Information Centre, Hilltops Council administration offices and local business."
Chair of the Hilltops Council Regional Tourism Committee Wes Leseberg said he was delighted with the support from businesses across the region.
"Those businesses see real potential in a holistic approach to the development of tourism in the Hilltops Region," he said.
"The aim is to encourage people from cities like Canberra and Sydney to come to the Hilltops region to enjoy our history and our food and wine."
Local businessman Adrian Capra said he was impressed with how the guide promotes the Hilltops region.
“I love that it's current and refreshing and it's promoting the region in a positive light," he said.
"As well as the products of our region it is good to promote the talent here as well.”
Mr Capra said the guide creates a positive awareness.
“More importantly it puts the region on the map,” he said.
“The guide is creating a destination for tourists in a very confident way."
