THE Tamworth region's favourite tourist locations are set to re-open thanks to a relaxing of restrictions by Tamworth Regional Council.
The Tamworth Visitor information Centre, National Guitar Museum and Wax Museum will be among the first to open from June 1.
The opening of the attractions concedes with the lifting of the state government's ban on regional travel.
Tamworth mayor Col Murray said the opening of the facilities was a "step in the right direction."
"Opening these things back up and allowing regional travel back to Tamworth will provide a big boost to our economy," Cr Murray said.
"We are able to do this because we are very confident our hospital is capable of handling any spike of coronavirus cases that pop up in our region."
The relaxation of guidelines will extend to the council's offices in Tamworth, Barraba, Manilla and Nundle, as well as library services.
Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson said allowing regional travel to resume was key to kick starting the local economy.
"Making sure we have public facilities open to help kick start the economy is something this government is very keen on," Mr Anderson said.
"We know these things are very popular, so we urge people who do travel do the right thing."
The council has also announced it will be lighting up some of Tamworth's landmarks blue on May 28 from 6pm, as a sign of respect for local health care workers.
Iconic landmarks such as the Golden Guitar and Tamworth Community Centre will illuminate as part of the Light it up Blue campaign.
The campaign was launched in the United Kingdom in March and has since spread to all corners of the world.
"Our local health care workers have been doing the hard work for us throughout this pandemic," Cr Murray said.
"This will be a great opportunity to recognise them and we encourage the whole community to get involved how ever they can."
