The MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival is the largest event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, attracting more than 220,000 visitors over four days in 2015 (source: EMRS market survey commissioned by the Dept of Economic Development, Tourism and the Arts). Media coverage is excellent and your message can reach far beyond Tasmania. With strong support from media partners Tourism Tasmania, Events Tasmania, ABC Radio and The Mercury, this is one of the best covered summer festivals in Australia. A visiting journalist program ensures that we reach far more than just the domestic market.
The value of media exposure in 2015 was measured in excess of $5.9 million (source: MyState Media Monitors report 2015).
