Local legends expansion and offer for Great Southern

Published on Thursday, 24 December 2020 at 9:06:47 AM

To recruit new members to its League of Local Legends program the National Anzac Centre is inviting residents from all 11 local governments in the Great Southern to sign up and enjoy free entry for the first 6 months of next year.

From 1 January to 30 June 2021 members of the Local Legends program no longer need to bring a guest to the National Anzac Centre to gain free entry, entry will be free for members who want to visit the centre without visitors for the full 6 months.

Previously the League of Local Legends program included Albany, Denmark, Plantagenet and Jerramungup but 2021 will see this expanded to include any resident within the Great Southern.

This will include the additional local governments of Broomehill-Tambellup, Cranbrook, Gnowangerup, Katanning, Kent, Kojonup and Woodanilling.

As one of the most significant tourism assets in the Great Southern, the National Anzac Centre attracts a vast amount of tourists but has been underutilised by locals due to the current entry cost.

Chief Executive Officer Andrew Sharpe encouraged residents in the Great Southern to sign up to the program and take advantage of the free entry offer.

“We want the National Anzac Centre to be more accessible to more of our local residents so that they can experience the incredible stories of our Anzacs without the barriers of an entry fee,” Mr Sharpe said.

“Residents young and old visit the National Anzac Centre to experience the legend of our ancestors where now they can join our League of Local Legends program and gain all the benefits on offer as well as not have to pay to enter for a full 6 months.

“As we enter a new year, a holiday period and some warmer weather this is a great time for locals to experience their own backyard with or without a visitor from outside the Great Southern.”

Residents in the Great Southern can sign up to the free program on the National Anzac Centre website www.nationalanzaccentre.com.au/locallegends
