Spreading the word

Murray Regional Tourism develops and delivers a range of marketing campaigns on behalf of its local government and industry partners. Our campaigns look to drive destination awareness and tourism-related visitation, and yield opportunities for the region.

These campaigns are innovative and integrated, utilising a range of channels to effectively engage with our region’s most important target markets.

Target markets

Stemming from our brand review, MRTB’s description of our overarching target audience is:

Interested, open and active people who find the demands of modern life often compromise their relationships with themselves and those around them.

They view regional Victorian holidays as the chance to get back to nature and the beautiful simplicity that brings.

These people are happy to travel for new experiences that’ll keep everyone happy with reasons to be active, involved and engaged.

They cross all age groups and demographics yet predominantly are well educated, higher in affluence and travel for short breaks.
