What is Eurobodalla? That’s the first question asked when the Jim Jam organisers set about putting the little known place on the map, as part of a new joint-initiative aimed at driving tourism to the region.
They soon discovered Eurobodalla was one of the best kept secrets on the South Coast of NSW, and one of the last natural bastions that truly reminds you of the way holidays used to be.
Eurobodalla is an untapped playground urging you to dive in, throw caution to the wind and immerse yourself in ‘all kinds of natural’.
Now we want to urge more Australians to discover this special place for themselves.
JimJam has been working closely with the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency Destination NSW in conjunction with Eurobodalla Shire Council to develop the overall strategy and produce the content for a compelling and fully integrated campaign.
Watch the awe-inspiring TVC below:
All Kinds of Natural aims to unleash the natural spirit within visitors; something that often gets buried beneath the daily grind of our demanding urban lives.
Minister for Tourism Stuart Ayres said the marketing campaign is just one of many initiatives the NSW Government is undertaking to support and drive regional tourism.
Ayres said: “Tourism is crucial for our entire State, and particularly for rural and regional NSW where it contributes $19.5 billion to the NSW economy and employs more than 90,000 people.
“The NSW Government recognises the vital role tourism plays in local communities and it’s why marketing campaigns like All Kinds of Natural are so important in ensuring every corner of NSW receives its fair share of our State’s tourism boom.
“All Kinds of Natural aims to drive awareness of Eurobodalla and stimulate demand for overnight visits and increased lengths of stay among couples in their mid-30s to mid-50s and young families.”
Eurobodalla Mayor Liz Innes said she’s incredibly proud of this milestone.
Mayor Innes commented: “The campaign launch is the culmination of many months of work to reposition Eurobodalla in a competitive domestic travel market. ”
“Our goal is ambitious and it’s to increase overnight visitation and expenditure by 25 per cent by 2021.”
She added: “We’ve done all the strategic work behind the scenes, and now, with the support of Destination NSW, our brilliant creative partner Jim Jam Ideas, and our hard-working tourism industry, we’re ready to share our new brand and start building that visitor growth.
“The new campaign captures the essence of what the region is all about and will absolutely spark the imagination of visitors.
“We have a new strategy, a new partnership, and now a new campaign. This is the beginning of something big and wonderful.”
JimJam creative director, Charlie Cook said: “I honestly have to say I’d never heard of Eurobodalla before.
“So when I discovered this natural haven just a few hours down the coast I was utterly blown away.
“I’m privileged to hopefully introduce a few more people to this rare place.”
