HEMSWORTH IN HAYMAN ISLAND
Actor Chris Hemsworth visits Hayman Island
CHRIS Hemsworth and his family graced our shores last week for an Australian holiday and one of their stops was our very own Hayman Island.
The Australian actor, known for his roles in Home and Away and as ‘Thor’ in the Marvel Avengers movies, spent five nights at One&Only Hayman Island resort.
The trip was part of a Tourism Australia campaign in a bid to encourage more international travellers to book an Australian holiday.
Photos and video taken during the trip by Chris and his wife Elsa will be shared with their combined 10 million social media followers.
Tourism Australia managing director John O’Sullivan said, as Tourism Australia’s global ambassador, Chris Hemsworth had already generated worldwide exposure for the country.
“Chris Hemsworth is already lending a genuine Australian voice to our campaign,” he said.
“This famil has taken that sense of authenticity a step further, giving him and his family the chance to show the world first-hand what it feels like to immerse yourself fully in an Australian holiday.”
Mr Hemsworth said the destinations he’d visited and the experiences he’d undertaken had been unforgettable and a powerful reminder of the raw nature and often hidden gems available to international visitors and also Australians wanting to explore Australia.
“Growing up in Australia, you can sometimes take it all for granted but after being away for 10 years and coming back, exploring some of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen, this experience reminded me of how unique and impressive Australia is and how lucky we are.”
The trip was organised by Tourism Australia with support from Tourism and Events Queensland and Tourism WA.
