POPULAR Armidale tourist attractions will feature in a new episode of Sydney Weekender, a show with more than 130,000 viewers, thanks to a partnership with the NSW Government to promote the array of experiences on offer across the State.
Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall said the episode secured by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, would encourage audiences to plan a visit to the region.
“This Sunday’s episode will feature one of the region’s most popular tours, Fleet Adventures, highlighting the unique scenic flights and adventures over the spectacular Oxley Wild Rivers Gorges,” Mr Marshall said.
“Showcasing this special attraction through Sydney Weekender is a terrific way to help boost tourism and demonstrates the NSW Government’s commitment to supporting regional towns and cities across the State.
“Attracting more visitors to our region plays a pivotal role in helping grow our local economy.
“I am delighted that Sydney Weekender will be promoting the many things to see and do around Armidale to so many potential visitors.”
NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said that encouraging visitation to Regional NSW is an important of part of the NSW Government’s role in attracting intrastate and interstate visitors.
“Securing episodes on popular travel shows such as Sydney Weekender provides an exciting platform to further cement our position as Australia’s most attractive holiday destination whilst helping to boost our overnight visitor economy,” Mr Ayres said.
The Sydney Weekender episode will air at 5.30pm this Sunday, 19 June, on the Prime Network across NSW and the ACT.
