Macedon Ranges council is on the hunt for feedback from the community to help improve next year’s Autumn Festival.

The festival, which was held between March 27 and April 25, included 30 community and business events across the municipality.

Macedon Ranges planning and environment director Angela Hughes said the council aimed to encourage residents and guests to the shire’s lesser known destinations next year.

“We want to encourage visitors and locals to explore attractions and experiences throughout the entire shire, including autumn drives and walks, food and beverage promotions, workshops and events,” Ms Hughes said.

“We’re looking to improve on communication with local businesses and community and make them a part of the journey from planning to execution.”

Romsey Region Business and Tourism Association (RRBATA) president Jenny Stillman said events such as their inaugural Romsey Progressive Dinner help showcase the diversity of the region.

“The RRBATA committee is interested in running the event again and can see potential for elevating it to be something truly special for the eastern corridor specifically and the Macedon Ranges Autumn Festival more generally,” she said.
