WOLLONGONG’S “Summer of Fun” bus is roaming the streets to promote great events in Wollongong this summer, thanks to Destination Wollongong and Dion Bus Service.
The bus is part of Destination Wollongong’s It’s ON! campaign, designed to promote Wollongong as the place to be this summer with its envious line up of events. The campaign is an extension of the Destination NSW It’s ON! campaign.
Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery said the bus is a promotional vehicle for popular cultural and sporting events.
Between December and March there will be 18 events with the potential to bring more than $20 million in economic value to the city.
Destination Wollongong General Manager Mark Sleigh said the organisation has attracted a great mix of activities and events to Wollongong.
Some of the events that the bus will be promoting include the Australia Day Aquathon, now the largest swim / run event in Australia, on January 26, the Sunset Cinema in the Wollongong Botanic Garden screening until January 19 with movies such as Skyfall and The Intouchable, and the Illawarra Folk Festival on January 17-20.
