Fraser Island tourism gets boot... err, boost
FRASER Island will be introduced to an estimated audience of 250 million people after a Beijing TV crew visited the World Heritage-listed island.
The crew of 10 people from BTV, the most influential national media in China, had arrived in the state as guests of Tourism and Events Queensland to film and participate in the Gold Coast Marathon.
However, the decision was made to extend the group's stay, during which the crew travelled to Brisbane and Noosa as well as Fraser Island.
During their time on Fraser Island, the group visited Lake McKenzie and 75-Mile Beach and also took the time to head up into the dunes, including to Rainbow Gorge.
The crew sampled native foods and had a bush tucker dinner at the Seabelle restaurant at Kingfisher Bay Resort.
BTV broadcasts in China, Asia and North America.
