Wattle Range Mayor Peter Gandolfi said today that he had seen the short tourism film at the centre of a ground swell of disappointment with local residents of the Limestone Coast and thought that it if was meant to be a generic film of the area, it fell short.
Mr Gandolfi told 5THE FM/wattlerangenow that highlighting one town in the area, leads to isolating others and this is clearly what happened in the new Tourism SA short film.
“We all have our own attractions and Tourism SA should be careful while highlighting one, not to do so at the detriment of others. This film is obviously about highlighting Robe.”
“If Tourism SA were planning to make a generic film of the area, our beaches, vineyards and hinterland can all look the same; but this film still fell short, ” he said.
