Mathoura more than a highway

By Ivy Jensen

A LONG-TERM project aimed at alerting the travelling public what Mathoura has to offer has been completed.

A sign, recently installed on the Cobb Hwy, points to the shopping centre and lists the various businesses operating in the town.

The Mathoura on the Map Committee hopes it will entice those travelling through to turn off and see there is more to Mathoura than the highway.

The group's next project is to have a similar sign installed in the Picnic Point precinct to educate visitors who may not be aware of what the town has to offer when they turn off the highway, at the southern entrance, and head for the Murray River and the forest.
