Get out and about and support your local 

Published: 22 October 2021

With COVID-19 restrictions easing now 70% of Victorians are double vaccinated, Cardinia Shire Mayor Brett Owen encourages locals to get out and about this weekend.  

Cardinia Shire Mayor, Cr Brett Owen, welcomes the easing of restrictions. 

“Small businesses, especially those in hospitality have really borne the brunt of COVID-19 with endless pivoting and changing up their business model to keep their heads above water during this challenging time.” 

“With the warmer weather coming, it’s time to get back out there and support our local businesses where we can. Jump online and find a local venue or small business near you.” 

Visit Cardinia Shire’s Buy Local website: and if you are looking for something to do this weekend jump on “What’s on Cardinia” for a complete guide to events and activities in your local area.

For local businesses looking for support to navigate recently announced Victorian Government outdoor trading grants, get in touch with Cardinia Shire Council’s Economic Development team on 1300 787 624, visit or email
