Media Matters: Tweed in the News


Destination Tweed’s public relations strategy has continued to generate excellent coverage for the Tweed region and our tourism operators in a range of international, national, regional and local publications:

  • Two Tweed articles have been published in the Malaysian Star and several blogs have been posted on Cheeserland.com and Sixthseal.com as a result of last month’s Air Asia X media famil;
  • Freelance travel/food writer, Sheridan Rogers, profiled the Tweed on Sydney radio station 2CH on 21 June and posted blogs about her recent visit on www.sheridanrogers.com. We are also waiting on publication of her stories in News Limited’s Escape travel lift-out and Get Up and Go Magazine;
  • The Winter issue of Sample NNSW Magazine includes feature articles on several Tweed food and tourism experiences including Andy Reimanis and the soon-to-be-opened Caldera Art Gallery, Buck Buchanan’s Bush Tucker Garden at Chillingham, our very own Australian Fashion Week designer, Byron McGilvray, and the village of Tyalgum, Archaeus’ new coffee cupping experience at Flutterbucks and the Tyalgum Festival of Classical Music;
  • Keep an eye out in the Gold Coast Bulletin for an upcoming feature on the Tweed as a result of writer Chantay Logan’s recent visit;
  • The Winter issue of Ocean Road Magazine features articles by our very own celebrity chef, Steve Snow, and a guest appearance by Babalou chef, Eddie Uzen, at the ‘Around the Table’ photo shoot. Tweed restaurants also received rave reviews from Channel Nine celebrity, Natalie Gruzlewski, when we caught up with her and her friends at Savannah Ray’s luxurious Salt beachfront home;

And, as always, all of our local media have been phenomenally supportive in publicising Destination Tweed’s activities and our fantastic tourism operators and events. Stories this month have covered:

  • Destination Tweed’s social media workshop
  • MasterChef Magazine’s coverage of the Tweed
  • Our launch of the 20th anniversary Tyalgum Classical Music Festival
  • The opening of the 2011 whale watching season
  • The White Olive’s bush tucker cooking class with Buck Buchanan at Chillingham
  • The grand opening fundraising day at Kingscliff Coastal Activities & Hire
  • Babalou Restaurant’s high tea media function
  • The Wearable Art Fashion Parade at Mavis’ Kitchen
