Minister for Tourism Stuart Ayres today announced the Central West will be on show this week, with some of the greatest tourism attractions and foodie hot spots set to feature in a special episode of the popular morning television talk show, Studio 10.1 August 2019
The segment, which will be hosted by Australian media personality Jonathan Coleman, is set to inspire viewers to make the most of their weekend and immerse themselves in the incredible offerings of Australia’s leading tourism State.
The feature will promote the upcoming Orange Winter Fire Festival and also highlight a number of the surrounding region’s must-do experiences, from exploring the main streets of Millthorpe and cooking authentic bush tucker with Indigenous Cultural Adventures, to getting hands on with the animals at the award-winning Heifer Station Wines.
Mr Ayres said the filming opportunity was secured by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW and supports the Government’s strategy to triple overnight visitor expenditure in NSW by 2030 in action.
“The NSW Government is determined to continue turbocharging rural and regional tourism and share the best of the bush and our wonderful local produce with the world.
“Securing media coverage, including segments on popular TV shows like Studio 10, helps to promote our State’s great tourism products to a wide audience and inspires people to look to NSW when planning their next short-break or longer escape, ultimately driving business for the local economy,” Mr Ayres said.
“Our State remains at the top of the tourism industry in Australia and due to NSW Government funding support, we are able to showcase our impressive rural and regional destinations and its residents and continue driving record breaking visitation.”
