City slickers urged to go bush
THE State Government has launched a new $1 million campaign to persuade more Sydneysiders to holiday in the bush.
“As someone who two weeks ago came back from a holiday in regional New South Wales, I can tell you it’s second to none,” says Premier Barry O’Farrell.
“They speak the same language, they’ve got the same culture and they’ve also got some great things for you to do.”
The government hopes to give city slickers a taste of what country areas have to offer by providing $1 million worth of accommodation vouchers that shoppers at Westfield malls can win.
Mr O’Farrell says he hopes the scheme will encourage more city-dwellers to forget overseas holidays and venture into the regions.
