As 2017 ends and many of us will be heading away for a break over the Christmas period, please take care on the roads.
No matter where you are travelling this summer be vigilant, drive safely, obey roadworks and take a break every two hours to ensure you arrive safely at your destination.
The SES runs driver reviver sites across Victoria during the Christmas period so stop and refresh with a free cuppa and biscuits. A 15-minute break can make all the difference.
During the holiday period, consider taking time to visit the wonderful attractions that exist within our region. There are plenty of things to do across Gippsland South, so why not spend a few days visiting local destinations?
Whether it be Wilsons Prom, Tarra Bulga National Park, Agnes Falls, Waratah Bay, the Strezlecki Ranges, Mirboo North Pool, Sandy Point, Venus Bay, Loch Sport or Port Albert there is so much on offer right across Gippsland South.
Wishing you a safe and Merry Christmas and best wishes to you and your family for 2018.
Danny O’Brien MLA, member for Gippsland South.
