Volunteers have been busy preparing materials to ‘sell’ Deniliquin to a huge city audience at the 2014 Country NSW Expo in Sydney.
Deniliquin Council won an opportunity to be involved in the Sydney Olympic Park event on Saturday and Sunday, August 2 and 3, where Deniliquin’s attraction as a ‘tree change’ destination will be highlighted.
Tourism will also be on the agenda, with a Deniliquin holiday to be won.
Deniliquin tourism officer Denise Thomas said it’s a wonderful chance for Deniliquin to gain exposure in Sydney and the surrounding areas.
‘‘Last time we were there we had numerous enquires about Deni; people were interested in the facilities, particularly health.
‘‘We’re going to showcase there are lots of job opportunities and employment options.
‘‘We also have permission to take the Ute Muster ute and are able to park it at the front entrance, which will be wonderful.
‘‘The stand won’t just show Deni’s attractions, but what the town is all about.’’
Visitors to the stand will have the chance to win a holiday in Deniliquin, courtesy of Deniliquin BIG4 Holiday Park.
There will be a range of literature handed out, including a unique story on two couples who have found their slice of paradise in Deniliquin and copies of the recently published ‘Deniliquin — The Lifestyle You Deserve’ brochure.
There will also be 500 copies of today’s Pastoral Times.
