Celebrating Australian culture in London thanks to a week long of events – that’s G’Day UK 2009.
The stream of events, sponsored by Australian tourist boards and other governmental institutions, is aimed at promoting travel to Australia but also at encouraging potential migrants to settle down under.
New South Wales‘ government has converted a bank on river Thames into a replica of famous Bondi beach, thank to tons of real sand dumped on the South Bank. The sunny weather in the UK’s capital makes such an inspiring initiative very welcome, especially thanks to gorgeous lifeguards and beach beauties – presumably real imported Aussies.
Attractive airfares are being promoted on Qantas.com and other travel agencies. Flightcentre has setup twenty life size kangaroos across London. The first to report sights of the jumping marsupials can win free holidays to … Kangaroo Island.
