All in a day?s work for ?famous? Hurley twins
By MEL MARTIN
FEATURING on a television show in 'banana gold' robes is not something that fazes Toni and Adelie Hurley.
The 86-year-old twins were filmed with Mike Whitney yesterday at the Big Banana for one of the Sydney Weekender segments.
"This is just another day," Toni said. "We've been there and done that so many times we're used to it. It's funny when someone tries to tell us how to do it. "We quietly chuckle."
After all, they've been promoting Coffs Harbour to the world in those robes for 22 years, ever since they moved to Coffs Harbour in 1983.
"We've been to Hong Kong, Greece, Egypt, Italy, everywhere the tourists went en masse, we were there in the robes," Adelie said.
And they say the robes have been a most effective marketing tool.
"Every time anything is on, they want us to get in the robes," Toni said.
"We wouldn't have done half of what we've done without them."
Adelie designed the robes and the twins made them.
"We have never retired from promoting Coffs wherever we go, and those robes do attract a lot of attention," Adelie said.
"The name of the game is that you must be able to be seen. Well, you can't miss us, can you!"
