The Central Coast has shared in the success of the Sydney College Cup, with visiting American media adding time to their travel itineraries to capture the beauty of the region, and share it with fellow US travellers.
TV documentary series, ‘In Season’, NFL blog, ‘The Blonde Side’, and online travel and entertainment magazine, ‘CultureMap’, visited Sydney to cover the NFL game, but set aside additional time to experience the famous lifestyle of the Central Coast.
‘In Season’ is a travel TV show that features destinations through the eyes of sports enthusiasts.
‘In Season’ filmed horse riding and quad biking, pelican feeding, and bush walking in the Bouddi National Park.
It will air in the US in mid-2018.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Mr Scot MacDonald, said the coverage resulting from these media visits will encourage American millennials to travel to the region.
“I am delighted that the beautiful Central Coast will be featured in the American media,” Mr MacDonald said.
“The broadcast and online stories will showcase our stunning beaches, national parks, and great food and wine scene, to encourage overnight visitation and boost the local economy,” he said.
“Leveraging major events and showcasing regional NSW helps the NSW Government towards its goal of doubling overnight visitor expenditure by 2020.”
