TTF Media Release

Tuesday 13 October 2020


The nation’s peak body for the tourism and transport industries has welcomed two of Australia’s most iconic homegrown personalities, Hamish Blake and Zoe Foster-Blake helping to inspire Australians to book their next domestic holiday as part of Tourism Australia’s latest campaign launched today.

TTF CEO Margy Osmond said it is incredibly important to get those dollars which would have previously gone overseas, circulating in the local tourism economy.

“As we get closer to the summer travel period and the festive season TTF joins with Hamish and Zoe and Tourism Australia in encouraging Australians to plan and book trips including longer interstate trips where borders allow and to get out and enjoy this amazing country of ours,” Margy Osmond said.

“Whether it is a tour within a world class national or marine park, a flight to a new regional destination to sample the local produce or an interstate city visit to see a performance or art gallery or iconic attraction, now is the time for all of us to think outside the square and travel like we might if we were overseas.

“Perhaps a trip or tour before or after already planned visits to friends and family, or with them, perhaps to an Australian destination that you had always planned on visiting but never quite got around to. The opportunities are there and the time is right to safely Holiday Here this Year.”
