Chinese TV series filming in NSW

The first episode of a Chinese television series has started filming on the Central Coast, New South Wales.

Called Deep Breathing in Australia, the six-part series is being filmed at various tourism destinations around the country.

“This tourism initiative will give the Central Coast the largest amount of international visibility it has had to date and is costing our community zip,” said the mayor for Wyong, Doug Eaton.

Growth in Chinese visitors to Australia rose by 18 per cent over the last year.

“What they’re doing is when they come here they spend money through shopping, through visitation, through economic activity and that’s good for all of us in Australia.

“They help people become employed and on the Central Coast we need more employment,” said Jonathan O’Dea, NSW Parliamentary secretary for tourism.

It is expected that the documentary style series will go out to a Chinese audience of around 400 million people.
