A $30,000 Victorian Government grant for an Economic Development, Tourism and Marketing Strategy for Lake Boga has been recently announced.
Minister for Regional and Rural Development Peter Ryan said the grant would help provide direction for the town and also help develop the potential of the area.


Lake Boga is situated between Kerang and Swan Hill on the Murray Valley Highway. It was originally named 'Circular Lake Boga' by Major Mitchell.

The large lake, which is the focal point of the town covers 809 unobstructed hectares and is ideal for all water sports including skiing, racing, yachting and swimming. There are four boat-launching ramps and the caravan and camping ground extend around some of the lake's perimeter.

Lake Boga is home to a modern Community Centre, Post Office, Police Station florist, planetarium, walking track and Burrabliss Farms bed and breakfast.

Mr Ryan said the community of Lake Boga Community had identified the lake and its surrounds as an underutilised asset and wanted to implement changes to enhance the area.
 
The new strategy which is expected to be completed by March 2012 will help;

  •         Develop an economic/tourism development vision
  •         Identify the economic drivers and competitive advantages of Lake Boga
  •         Develop a clearly articulated action plan and associated costing for the key growth areas for implementation by the Council
  •         Provide a proposed prioritisation of the Council’s development and marketing focus which is directly linked to Council’s Tourism Strategy
  •         Develop detailed investment prospectuses or plans to help facilitate some short term investment for at least two opportunities.
