Hume residents are being encouraged to get behind Living Legends in the upcoming state tourism awards.

The Greenvale attraction is up for the people’s choice category at the Victorian Tourism Awards at the end of this month.

Hume mayor Carly Moore said it was great that Living Legends is vying for state and potentially national recognition.

“Living Legends is one of Victoria’s most unique attractions, offering visitors the opportunity to meet retired champion racehorses as well as exploring the Woodlands Historic Homestead and impressive grounds,” Cr Moore said.

“Greenvale’s 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, including a new Phar Lap exhibition.

“Living Legends is a fantastic place for international visitors to observe wild kangaroos in their natural bush habitat and dine at the popular Black Caviar Cafe and Dining Room which is well renowned for its traditional Devonshire Tea.”

The Victorian Tourism Awards showcase the state’s leaders in tourism excellence and all winners qualify for the annual Qantas Australian Tourism Awards.

The 2019 winners will be presented at a Gala Ceremony on November 28 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
