Victoria targeting Victorians: New tourism ad campaign
Tourism Victoria is targeting Victorians for the first time in a decade.
A TV ad campaign in which two friends walk home from a winery lunch is the centrepiece of the new $4.5 million initiative aimed at getting Melburnians to go beyond the city and visit their state.

‘We wanted to remind people that, two hours from Melbourne, you can get to some places that are absolutely stunning,’ said Visit Victoria’s Nick Foa.

Some nominations from the ad, and from 3AW listeners, include:
