Take a look around the East
Melbourne East RDA funded the tertiary education industry in an effort to boost international education visitation to the region.
The project provided students and their visitors with tourism information tailored to their specific needs to enhance their Australian and education experience. At the same time, it will boost the local tourism industry through increased expenditure and visitation in the region. International students formed the heart of the project’s working group. Student representatives were active in nominating a series of themes to guide the final product. These themes included Australian wildlife, music, arts, photography, museums, zoos, cultural history, shopping, cycling and multicultural activities.
