THE SNOWIES ON SHOW WITH SYDNEY WEEKENDER
Member for Monaro John Barilaro has expressed his excitement that viewers of Channel Seven’s popular travel show Sydney Weekender will be able explore a different side to the NSW Snowy Mountains, as part of a segment airing this Sunday 29 September.
Sydney Weekender travels throughout NSW exploring the best places to stay, eat and play, in a bid to inspire viewers to make the most of their weekend.
Sunday’s segment will highlight a new way to explore the stunning wilderness of the Snowy Mountains – a guided electric bike tour – as well as the historic huts of the Lake Crackenback Resort and stylish new boutique property, The Eastern.
Member for Monaro John Barilaro said while the Snowy Mountains are the perfect place to hit the slopes during the colder months, the region also offers an ideal getaway during Spring and Summer.
“As the weather starts to warm up, the Snowy Mountains really come to life with new growth and stunning wildflowers. It’s a beautiful place to hike with family or to hop on your bike and explore with friends,” Mr Barilaro said.
“As many locals would already know the region also offers the opportunity to try some of the best produce and cool climate wines on offer. It’s exciting to see this beautiful part of the world showcased on Sydney Weekender and I know it will encourage more people to consider spending their next holiday in the Snowies.”
Minister for Tourism Stuart Ayres said the segment, secured by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, is part of a much bigger strategy to boost visitation in regional NSW.
“The NSW Government is determined to continue turbocharging rural and regional tourism, and part of that involves sharing the best of the bush with the rest of the world,” Mr Ayres said.
“We’ve set an ambitious goal of $20 billion in regional NSW visitor expenditure by 2025 and $25 billion by 2030.”
