CITY of Port Phillip representatives have invited Hindmarsh Shire residents to visit the city for a friendship weekend.
The trip to Port Phillip in March follows a visit from City of Port Phillip residents to Hindmarsh in September.
Hindmarsh Shire chief executive Dean Miller said the friendship weekend in September was a 'fantastic introduction' to the Hindmarsh region for Port Phillip citizens.
"We received many positive comments from those who attended and they are keen to reciprocate the hospitality provided to them during their visit,'' he said.
Hindmarsh Shire community development director Phil King said the friendship weekend created good connections between the two municipalities.
"It creates a lot of cultural connections and social connections," he said.
"Some of the people who came to Hindmarsh have been back since, so it creates that link between city and country."
Mr King said an itinerary was being planned for the visit to Port Phillip from March 22 to 24.
"There will be a range of different venues and activities," he said.
"Some of them will be things that people from Hindmarsh don't normally do when they go to the city.
"It is going to be an organised weekend but there will also be some free time."
He said transport was free but people would need to pay for accommodation, meals and entry fees.
"We would like interested people to register as soon as possible so we can organise travel arrangements," he said.
He said shire residents interested in the trip could call Hindmarsh Shire Council on 5391 4444.
