Dear Editor,
There are many reasons to celebrate Easter; the resurrection of Christ, spending time with friends and family, good food and generally, great weather.
One of the best things about Easter time is the great weather the Wimmera Mallee enjoys. With the Grampians in the south and the Murray River in the north, the Wimmera Mallee is the perfect holiday destination for you and your family, no matter where you live.
There are plenty of sights to see and explore in the Grampians and Halls Gap, and the water is just the right temperature along the banks of the Murray in Mildura and Swan Hill – and if you haven’t already filled up on chocolate eggs, there is plenty of fresh local produce on offer in the Wimmera, Mallee and Mildura regions that will have your Easter feast covered.
Easter does however; attract more drivers on our roads and I urge you all to take care when travelling and put the safety of you and your family first. Take your time and enjoy the drive, be wary of other road users and take regular breaks.
I wish everyone a safe and happy Easter for 2014 and look forward to seeing you in the Wimmera, Mallee and Mildura regions.
