Avengers star books Tassie trip

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS -

HOLLYWOOD heart­throb Chris Hemsworth is head­ing our way — thanks to the tire­less sales­man­ship of Tas­ma­nian Se­na­tor Jonathon Du­niam.

The Avengers: Endgame star made a sur­prise ap­pear­ance at the launch of a new tourism campaign spruik­ing Aus­tralia’s unique way of life in Syd­ney yes­ter­day.

In a ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion, Hemsworth was asked what Aus­tralian des­ti­na­tion he’d next like to visit — and nom­i­nated Lord Howe Is­land.

Never one to miss an op­por­tu­nity to spruik his home state, Se­na­tor Du­niam, the fed­eral as­sis­tant min­is­ter for Re­gional Tourism, said he could do one bet­ter. “Mate, I’ve got a bet­ter is­land than Lord Howe,” he said. “Come to Tas­ma­nia, we will turn it on for you.”

Hemsworth gladly ac­cepted the of­fer, bas­ing his im­pres­sions from a sin­gle, brief pre­vi­ous overnight stay: “I was like, oh my gosh, this place is stun­ning, I had no idea. I’d love to do a trip down there.”
