Have you seen our new signs?

Regular visitors to the Snowies will have noticed a change in town signage for the area. Now an amalgamated council, the new signs depict the Snowy Monaro Regional Council logo. Locals have welcomed the new designs, with unique town taglines representing each town’s significance to the region, such as ‘Australia’s Alpine Playground’ for Jindabyne and ‘Capital of the Snowy Mountains’ for Cooma. The artwork at the top and base of the signs has been designed to represent the hills of the Snowy Monaro region.

Creative Alliance was engaged to develop the signage options for council’s considerations. Their brief was to provide a range of designs reflecting the locality and traditional owners of the land. Providing a fresher look, they help bring the region together following the amalgamation. The rear side of the signs displays the logo of region’s new application (app) ‘Snowy Guide’. Snowy Guide is designed to show off the Snowy Monaro region and make information available to visitors and

locals. Information is collated by each local centre, and organised in to one handy package. The extensive business directory helps you find places to shop, eat, buy skis and bikes, hire chains for the road, or get your car fixed. Before arriving, visitors have the chance to browse the activities and events and plan their trip around them. Snowy Guide is available to download for free for iOS devices.

Get those rods and tackle boxes ready; it’s time for the Snowy Mountains Trout Festival. This years 44th annual Yamaha / Freshwater Fishing Snowy Mountains Trout Festival will be run from Saturday November 4 to Friday November 10. With the trout season re-opening on October long weekend, this year’s BIG snow season will have an interesting impact on the Snowy Mountains waterways. The trout festival is always a great way to enjoy our region, catch up with friends and family and bag a big fish.
