Friday, 24 July 2020
THE Northern Tablelands will star on small screens across the country this weekend with Glen Innes, Black Mountain, Matheson and Tenterfield included on Network 10’s Taste of Australia with Hayden Quinn, showcasing the region’s top tourism destinations and experiences.
Local State MP Adam Marshall said the primetime slot was part of a major State Government campaign to reinvigorate regional tourism.
“This is a very significant opportunity for our part of the world to step out of the shadow of the recent drought and bushfires and showcase, to a national audience, the high quality produce and diverse range of visitor opportunities we offer,” Mr Marshall said.
“There will definitely be some familiar faces and sites on this weekend’s episode, with fossicking at the iconic Waterloo Station, west of Glen Innes, a taste of Deano’s Springwater Smoked Trout at Black Mountain, a visit to Tenterfield’s Rochford Organic Garlic and cook up at Rangers Valley Beef.
“Regional tourism will have a significant role to play in helping local economies rebuild post COVID-19, and this is a fantastic platform for us to showcase the unique activates we offer to an audience of 5.2 million people.
“Our inclusion in Episode 1, sets a high benchmark for other areas which will feature later in the season, and will put the New England at the forefront of viewer’s minds when they start to plan their future getaway.”
Taste of Australia with Hayden Quinn will air at 4.30pm tomorrow (Saturday, 25 July).
