Following the National Crisis Management Centre’s lift of its ‘essential Christchurch travel only’ ban, the bureau is said to be preparing a non-affected wider-Canterbury campaign, Car Rentals reported. Destinations such as Kaikoura, Hanmer Springs, and Mackenzie County will be highlight in the ad, targeted at New Zealand’s major tourism market, Australia. As part of the campaign, the bureau has invited travel bloggers to discuss New Zealand attractions and publicise them on Twitter between 21 and 23 March.
