As the general manager on Monday, Ms. Marshall joined Orange Region Tourism or ORT before it officially coming into operation from January 1st, 2018.
She explained that the Orange should be seen as an entryway to other areas in the region.
“We have a fantastic product here,” she said.
ORT will offer tourism promotion for the areas like Orange, Cabonne and Blayney councils with representatives of all three councils on the inaugural board.
Ms Marshall explained that Orange’s food and wine industries appeared were quite attractive to the tourists and she is keen to expand its appeal of the area.
To quote her, “We’ve got some cracking country pubs in the region. It is about providing for people who come here and can see cherries hanging in the trees, apples hanging in the trees. Food and wine is one of the things people are thinking of when they go on holidays.”
The grey nomad market, she said was especially interested on seeing history and heritage as part of their visit.
