Jobs at risk for Bendigo tourism sector

Bendigo Tourism has joined the growing number of groups calling for Jobkeeper to be extended.

It says over 4000 jobs could be at risk if the support payment is not pushed back past the current deadline of September.

Chair of Bendigo Tourism Finn Vedelsby says not extending the program could jeopardise the local industry worth over $950m each year.
