Red Carpet for Postcards Australia

Hot on the heels of a recent film crew from Queensland's premier travel TV programme, this morning Postcards Australia flew into Stanthorpe aerodrome.

They are the latest media to run with the story on the new fly-in tours to the Queensland wine capital being offered by Sunshine Aviation out of Archerfield in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.

Moments after the red carpet was rolled out again, Granite Belt Wine & Tourism's Michele Cozzi popped the cork on a chilled bottle of local sparkling Chardonnay.  The activity was all to celebrate the landing of Win TV's top rated national travel show.  The film crew were here to film a six minute segment for series two of the hit show.

This was the first visit to the Queensland wine capital for presenter Susie Elelman, who said the ground temperature made her realise why the Granite Belt has a reputation as the coolest place in Queensland. Shortly after the aircraft landed Susie did a telephone interview with a Brisbane radio station who were also keen to report the new charter air service.

Susie and the film crew, together with pilot Cheryl Arentz were whisked off by tour bus for a day's filming throughout the region.  The story will broadcast nationally later in the winter.  [pictured from left: Michele Cozzi, Cheryl Arentz, Susie Elelman and Martin Weaver]
