Visit Canberra is the official tourism organisation for Canberra and the ACT Government which works to grow the tourism economy for Canberra and the surrounding regions by creating and implementing a range of marketing and development programs.
To break down the misconception among consumers that Canberra is a boring destination and to amplify Visit Canberra's 'summer destination' campaign.
Horizon developed an integrated marketing and communications campaign incorporating media relations, stakeholder engagement and industry partnerships to build awareness of Canberra as a fun and enjoyable holiday destination.

Horizon secured 21 editorial pieces, surpassing the campaign KPI of 16, communicating Visit Canberra’s key messages to almost 11.5 million people. Media articles appeared in a range of metro and regional outlets including;, Daily Telegraph, Qantas magazines, Urban Walkabout, National Geographic Traveller, Illawarra Mercury, Holidays with Kids and across several radio and TV outlets.
Horizon also delivered two extension strategies and forged several media partnerships including with Getaway on the Nine Network. The autumn campaign yielded good results as well with secured coverage in; The Australian, Sydney Morning Herald, Best Weekend, Qantas, In Flight Magazines, Australian Traveller and Nova. Horizon also leveraged Visit Canberra’s partnership with Virgin to maximize ROI through additional channels.
