Local Pride: how you can help Warrnambool get back on her feet


Living your life in zoom meetings and getting sick of the same four walls?

Why not brighten up your zoom room, by uploading one of the breathtaking I AM WARRNAMBOOL backgrounds? 

The tourism industry has been worst affected by this pandemic, and this simple act can help. 

Tourism not only supports accommodation providers and attractions but our hospitality and retail traders, markets and event organisers, galleries, supermarkets, petrol stations, transport, even mechanics and beauty therapists gain business from our many visitors.

You can help your tourism industry and local economy by planting the seed for Warrnambool wanderlust - now.

Fill your screen with the places and spaces that are waiting for us, and visitors to return - when it's safe.

While people are dreaming of their post-pandemic adventures it’s time to show off Warrnambool!

Much of Warrnambool’s tourism comes from the visiting friends and relatives of our proud locals. You’re more powerful than you think so please download a background and #getaroundwarrnambool.

By inviting your friends and family to follow @IAMWARRNAMBOOL on social media will also help the recovery effort more than you know.
