Four of Hume’s top cafes and restaurants are set to shine in an upcoming episode of popular travel program, Postcards.
The Channel Nine program visited the municipality late last month to film a segment for an upcoming episode.
Host Lauren Phillips and the Postcards crew visited Sunbury, where they filmed stories at organic store and cafe, Happy Olive, and quaint cafe, Fork and Cake.
They also visited Roxburgh Park’s Corner Store Espresso, and up-and-coming Mickleham winery, Marnong Estate.
Hume mayor Geoff Porter said the episode would showcase Hume’s diverse dining options.
“It was great to have Lauren Phillips spend time in Hume. I think she was very impressed with all that Hume has to offer,” he said.
“These are just some of the many gems that we are fortunate to have here in Hume and we are excited to have them beamed into hundreds of thousands of lounge rooms across Australia.”
Cr Porter said Hume’s tourism industry was booming.
“The visitor economy is a vital industry in our city. In 2016, Hume received 1.22 million visitors and generated over $2 billion,” he said.
“Over the next few years, Hume will experience significant new investment in the visitor economy – over $100 million worth – providing new tourism experiences and driving local and international visitation and spend.
“The visitor economy remains Hume’s fourth largest industry and with the addition of these new attractions, it is only going to continue to grow and grow.”
The Postcards episode will air on Sunday, April 22 at 5.30pm.
