Disney comes to Coffs

THE COFFS Coast is set to star on national television – again.

It’s hoped kids across the nation will be bugging their parents for a holiday here after popular kids television show, Saturday Disney, screens its special episode dedicated to the Coffs Coast and its family friendly activities.

For the past few days, hosts Shae Brewster, Sally Stanton and Jack Yabsley have been enjoying everything the region has to offer from toboganning at the Big Banana, to swimming with the dolphins at the Pet Porpoise Pool and playing with butterflies at The Butterfly House.

“We’ve had a great time,” Mr Yabsley said. “I had a seal sit on my head yesterday, which isn’t something that happens every day so that was ‘interesting’.

“And I got to try out the trapeze at Zip Circus yesterday which was loads of fun.”

Ms Brewster most enjoyed her time at the Big Banana.

“We had a banana split-eating competition with no hands which was fun,” she said. “This really is like a mini-break, Coffs is a great place and the weather has been fantastic. We only do about three location shots a year so it’s nice to come to Coffs.”

Coffs Coast Marketing manager Glenn Caldwell said this was a new area of promotion for the Coffs Coast.

“This is something different in terms of exposure, it’s something we haven’t really done before,” he said.

“Young families are certainly one of our target markets and in terms of exposure it’s a fantastic thing.

“This is two hours on a Saturday morning going straight into the lounge rooms of families across Australia.”

The episode is on Prime, June 26.
