Jetty Road Retreat in Nungurner has been awarded for its contribution to making Victoria’s tourism industry the envy of the nation.

Today, Member for Eastern Victoria Region, Harriet Shing congratulated Stephen and Kim Kleinitz for taking out the Standard Accommodation Category at the prestigious 2015 RACV Victorian Tourism Awards. The award is a fitting tribute to the Kleinitz family’s commitment to giving visitors an unforgettable Gippsland experience.

About Jetty Road Retreat:

Situated on the Gippsland Lakes, Jetty Road Retreat offers secluded waterfront accommodation in a peaceful bush setting.

Conveniently located between the popular tourist towns of Lakes Entrance and Metung, Jetty Road Retreat features four self-contained two-bedroom units, offering an affordable lakeside living experience, with access to a private jetty.

Tourism contributes $21 billion to the State’s economy and generates jobs for 206,000 Victorians, but the success of the industry is due in large part to the hard work of our wineries, hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions in highlighting the best of everything Victoria has to offer.

The Andrews Labor Government has recently unveiled Visit Victoria, the State’s new entity charged with growing this important industry, and has committed an additional $80 million to attracting and retaining major events and tourism.

The Andrews Labor Government is also investing $3 million in the most ambitious regional marketing campaign in our State’s history, while Brand Victoria will help sell our
strengths as Victoria competes for trade and investment, tourism, major events and international students.
