AXEDALE Tavern owner Gary Vanwyner thinks Project Platypus will be good for business.
The publican, who has lived in Axedale for eight years, said it would encourage more people to visit.
“I think it will be good,” he said.
“Already we have been getting quite a few more people coming through. We have seen an extra dozen or so every weekend.
“A lot of them are casual riders and they stop and have a meal or a beer in the pub and then ride back.
“I think if they open up the watering hole it will help.
“We haven’t had much to do with the project directly but we have been informed of the plans. The group has a bit of a feel around to see what is good for the community.”
