Big win for local Living Legends

The people’s choice category of the 2019 Victorian Tourism Awards was awarded to local tourism attraction Living Legends at the gala ceremony on 28 November 2019. 

Mayor of Hume City, Councillor Carly Moore congratulated the Living Legends team and said it is great that a local attraction has been recognised in the 2019 Victorian Tourism Awards.

“Winning the people’s choice category demonstrates how Living Legends has made a positive impression on locals and visitors to Hume City.

“In addition to taking out the People’s Choice Award, Living Legends was also acknowledged as one of five finalists in the Cultural Tourism category.

“Hume City offers numerous attractions, cafes, wineries and historic places and we are pleased that Living Legends has received State-wide recognition for its contribution to the visitor economy.

“One of Victoria’s most unique attractions, Living Legends offers visitors the opportunity to meet retired champion racehorses as well as explore the Woodlands Historic Homestead and grounds,” Cr Moore said.

“Woodlands Historic Homestead is one of the oldest built structures in Hume, with construction dating back to 1842 and houses an extensive collection of local history and racing memorabilia.   

“Located only six minutes from Melbourne Airport, Living Legends is a great destination for international visitors to observe wild kangaroos in their natural habitat and dine at the popular Black Caviar Cafe and Dining Room which is renowned for its traditional Devonshire Tea.”

“This summer I encourage everyone to explore and enjoy Hume City, there are so many places of interest to visit with your family and friends.

The visitor economy (tourism) is Hume City’s fourth largest economic driver and continues to show growth, with an output of $2.193 billion and over 6,500 jobs, contributing to the economic prosperity of the city. This growth highlights the important role Hume City Council has in supporting local tourism and enhancing the liveability of the city.
