“I am delighted to announce that the NSW Government, through its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, is supporting the Coffs Harbour round of this year’s Offshore Superboat Championships set to take place in August,” Mr Fraser said.

“The NSW Government’s continued support for regional events provides a strong opportunity to promote the many wonderful NSW destinations such as Coffs Harbour, and I encourage everyone to begin planning a trip to the region for the opportunity to watch teams go head-to-head in fast and furious racing action.”

Coffs Harbour will also feature when this round of the Championships is screened to a national and international broadcast audience through SBS and Fox Sports in Australia, Sommet Sports in New Zealand, MAV TV in North America and via the Motorsports TV app.

Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said events play an important role in driving visitation across the state, which helps to achieve the NSW Government’s goal of doubling overnight visitor expenditure by 2020.

“In the year ended March 2016, NSW received 28.6 million domestic visitors who stayed 92.1 million nights and spent $16.4 billion,” Mr Ayres said.


“These numbers not only reflect the extraordinary ongoing growth achieved by the NSW Government but the importance of investing in regional events which are a major contributor the State’s overnight visitor economy.”


The Coffs Harbour round of the Offshore Superboat Championships is part of the Trans-Tasman Offshore Challenge featuring boats from the New Zealand Powerboat Series.
