Treasures Trail for China
The Limestone Coast Government Association has partnered with South Australia Tourism Commission to develop a trail across the region that serves up and easily identifies experiences that are suitable to our Chinese-speaking visitors. This was designed locally by Bianca Gillin and printed by Hansen Print in both English and Mandarin and we also were able to engage a local translator - Xui Bai (also known as Snowie).
In addition to having these available at Visitor Information Centres in the Limestone Coast and into the Western Districts of Victoria, we have a commercial arrangement with the Adelaide Airport directly outside International arrivals - leveraging the increase in arrivals from China Southern Airlines. Distribution of these brochures will be in the last week of April.
