Tourism Victoria continually strives to market Melbourne as a desirable destination for domestic and international visitors. This section has information on our current marketing campaigns.
Melbourne MarketingTourism Victoria unveiled the major brand campaign Play Melbourne in June 2011.
Reinforcing Melbourne’s reputation as a city of endless possibilities, the Play Melbourne campaign centres on the idea that if you are curious enough to take a chance, you’re bound to discover one of Melbourne’s many treasures. It depicts a city that is vibrant, energetic and colourful and encourages visitors to be spontaneous, reawaken their curiosity and explore Melbourne on a whim.
The development of the campaign was driven by three fundamental factors including converting high domestic preference to travel to Melbourne into actual visitation; evolving the Melbourne brand to incorporate more active and energetic elements; and positioning Melbourne as a premium destination by highlighting the authentic qualities inherent to the city.
Play Melbourne is a fully integrated media campaign comprising television, cinema, print and radio advertising, cooperative travel industry marketing, as well as online, social media and public relations activity.
Play Melbourne forms Phase 10 of Tourism Victoria’s Jigsaw campaign and builds on the Phase 8 It’s Easy to Lose Yourself in Melbourne campaign which was in market from 2006-2010.
