GNOME HITS THE SCREEN TO ENCOURAGE TASMANIANS TO ‘GO SEE’ THEIR STATE - Paula Wriedt, MHA - Tasmanian Government Media Releases

Postcards with sightings of Tasmania’s Gnome on holiday are part of the latest strategy to encourage Tasmanians to get out and see more of the State.

Tourism Minister Paula Wriedt said new television advertisements will air from this weekend as part of the latest phase of the “Go See Tasmania” campaign.

“Tasmanians love their weekend break or day away,” Ms Wriedt said. “We are encouraging them to use these times to attend one of the many key local events held throughout the State.

“We live on such a wonderfully exciting and interesting island, with so many different holiday options for families, couples and individuals.

“We are saying to Tasmanians – get outside of your local area and discover for yourself how much there is to do. Then tell your friends and relatives when they come to visit. Show them how to make their next Tasmanian holiday the best they’ve ever had. Dazzle them with your local knowledge – you’ll all have so much more fun.”

Ms Wriedt said the campaign will complement current advertising and act as a further stimulus for visitors to travel more widely and spend more in the State.

“The goseetasmania website is packed with information that will motivate Tasmanians to get out and about,” she said.

“The website has been upgraded significantly in the last few weeks and is closely aligned with all sorts of activities and programs on offer this summer.”

“There are links to the Wild and Wonderful program by the Parks and Wildlife Services, Port Arthur, the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, the Royal Botanical Gardens and the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery.”

“So jump on the site or drop in to your local visitor information centre and have a look what you could be doing this weekend.”

The television commercials will commence this weekend and run until 5 February 2006 on Southern Cross.
