A great new guide to Whitehorse for visitors and locals

16 May 2018

A new guide to Whitehorse and Box Hill is the handy way to get the lowdown on getting around Whitehorse and enjoying all it offers.

Whitehorse Mayor Councillor Andrew Davenport said the Whitehorse & Box Hill Visitor Guide comes complete with detailed maps highlighting public transport routes, shopping precincts, playgrounds, walking tracks and lots more.

“A new report from Destination Melbourne has highlighted the importance of the visitor economy as a significant contributor to the overall economy,  attracting over 3.3 million visitors and generating nearly $2.4 billion across  Melbourne’s East,” Cr Davenport said.

“Visiting friends and relatives coming into Whitehorse provide a significant contribution to a range of local businesses including dining venues, supermarkets, chemists and retail stores.”

The new guide, produced by Council’s Investment & Economic Development Unit, provides an overview of Council facilities including parks, sport and libraries and key services such as tertiary education, shopping precincts, transport and hospitals.

Residents and businesses are encouraged to collect a copy of the Whitehorse & Box Hill Visitor Guide at one of Council’s Customer Service Centres for their visiting friends and relatives to discover and experience the many things that Whitehorse has to offer.
