OVER 6000 people have visited the Euroa Hub information centre since it opened at the start of the year.

Statistics from Strathbogie Shire Council revealed about 6325 people had walked into the Hub since January, looking for information about Euroa and its surrounding districts.

While the final figures for December have not yet been released, volunteers have noticed a trend in what people are interested in when they visit the town.

Judith Durston, who has lived in Strathbogie since 2000, has been a volunteer since the Hub opened its doors and said every day, visitor enquiries changed.

“Locals and tourists come to the Hub to look for information and mainly want to know what is happening in Euroa,” she said.

“People normally enquire about health services, accommodation and Ned Kelly, as well as the Euroa Arboretum, Gooram Falls and more recently, the Victoria Cross statues.”
