Piecing Together Dreamy Holidays for Later
Dreaming of a holiday in the beautiful Tweed region of northern NSW, for when travel is back on the table, can now be pieced together at home with a fun digital jigsaw puzzle series, launched today by the Tweed Tourism Company.
Featuring iconic Tweed landscapes including the majestic Wollumbin Mount Warning and Cabarita Beach – named Australia’s best beach in 2019 by Tourism Australia’s beach ambassador Brad Farmer – the ‘Dream Now, Visit Later’ jigsaw series is available free online.
Bradley Nardi, General Manager of the Tweed Tourism Company, said the initiative, which also features the much-loved Margaret Olley Art Centre at Tweed Regional Gallery and gin mecca Husk Distillers, will help to fill time at home while bringing inspiration for future Tweed holidays.
“This new Tweed digital jigsaw series is designed foremost to be fun while at home in isolation, but also to inspire future travel to our stunning region at a time when we can’t physically journey to our favourite places.”
“As a company and tourism destination, the Tweed is also very much about being sustainable and having a light footprint so going online was the ideal way to celebrate the jigsaw puzzle revival without having to produce, print and post.”
The innovative digital jigsaw series is the latest element of the Tweed Tourism Company’s #LoveTheTweed initiative, which has been connecting locals and Tweed-lovers alike to over 80 tourism offerings that can be enjoyed at home – from free shipping of Husk Distiller’s popular Ink Gin, care packages by Good Food Guide’s 2020 Regional Restaurant of the Year, Pipit, and local produce hampers from Blue Ginger Picnics, who recently took out Gold at the Australian Tourism Awards in the Specialised Tourism category.
Calming, immersive video has also featured as part of the initiative, inviting viewers to fly high in the sky around towering Wollumbin Mount Warning, to marvel at the expansive orchards of Tropical Fruit World and to find peace with a serene paddle along the mighty Tweed River.
A resurgence in the popularity of jigsaw puzzles during the extended at-home isolation of COVID-19 has seen retail shelves cleared and delays to online ordering, adding further dimension and immediacy to the Tweed’s ‘dream now’ message
“These stunning ‘Dream Now, Visit Later’ jigsaw puzzles are free to access on our website at visitthetweed.com.au and are ready to load on your browser and piece together right now,” Mr Nardi said.
“And later, when it’s safe to travel, we’ll be here ready to welcome visitors back to the Tweed to experience it all first-hand.”
