The feature was part of a suite of ongoing activity secured by the State’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW CEO Sandra Chipchase said. The feature aims to raise the profile of regional and rural NSW and to convert interest into bookings.
“Once again our State remains at the forefront of tourism in Australia and this initiative shows that we continue to work tirelessly to keep the spotlight on our incredible rural and regional destinations as we strive for $25 billion in visitor spend by 2030,” Chipchase said.
“Growing tourism in rural and regional NSW is a key priority for Destination NSW and exposure such as this will ensure the Snowies continues to attract overnight visitors which in turn, will help to boost the local economy.”
The Snowies is a magical destination year round where visitors can enjoy everything from great festivals and regional events, a summit walk to Australia’s highest peak and fly fishing in pristine mountain waters in warmer months, to skiing and snowboarding in colder months.
Getaway will be filming at various locations across the Snowy Mountains from March 15 until March 20, 2019. Getaway is a national television series which airs on Channel 9 at 5.30pm on Saturdays. The Snowy Mountains episode is expected to air in the second half of 2019.
