Storytown's latest south-west podcast explores Lismore, its larrikins and the projects putting the town on the map.
The Lismore Podcast Tour hosts Jarrod Pickford and Emily Edge chat to Jimmi Buscombe about his water tower project and find out the ancient geological history of the area.
"Lismore may be a small country town, but it has a big heart, and lots of community spirit. It was amazing spending time with the locals of Lismore - we uncovered some amazing stories," Miss Edge said. "So many people drive through Lismore and do not realise just how much it has to offer to the visitor."
"We want to make people realise that when you drive through a small country town, you should stop and pull over because there is so much to discover."
The latest podcast is the first to be launched on the Hamilton-based podcast creators' app 'Storytowns' which uses through geo-location technology to showcase regional and rural towns.
"We are so excited to have the app up and running so listeners can easily tune in for an immersive experience which has been created with our geo-location technology," Miss Edge said.
The podcast was made possible by Corangamite Shire and mayor Ruth Gstrein said it was an innovative way to attract more visitors to Lismore and the Volcanic Lakes and Plains tourism region.
"The podcasts are designed to encourage tourism, promote local businesses and help boost the local economy and links Lismore to the silo art tour podcast series," Cr Gstrein said.
"They will be a great marketing asset for our new tourist attraction."
