Rolling Billboard promotes Mildura
Mildura now has its own giant ‘rolling billboard', travelling some 250,000kms around Australia each year promoting the region and urging holidaymakers to "get to Mildura". In an exclusive alliance, Mildura-based GTS Freight Management and its premium G1 Logistics fleet has partnered with Mildura Tourism to produce a 26metre-long year-round advertisement for our region. The B-double's two trailers are 7.5 metres and 16 metres long respectively; each is three metres high. All four faces of the huge truck curtains have been adorned with individual massive full-colour images that depict classic Murray River activities plus food, wine and produce lifestyles that are synonymous with our region.
An early call at Zilzie Wines
It was no surprise that GTS Freight Management's early call for our great new tourism truck was to collect a load of premium Zilzie Wines from its Karadoc winery.
A long standing Mildura Tourism member, Zilzie is one of Australia's 10 largest wineries, producing around 25 million litres of wine each year.
