Famous Actors visit Capricorn Coast!

Marta Dusseldorp and Ben Winspear, husband and wife actors and stars of the recently acclaimed Scenes from a Marriage at QPAC Theatre in Brisbane, enjoyed three fun filled days on the Capricorn Coast last week with their two young daughters.

Ben Winspear was the main talent for a photographic fashion shoot for Brando Classic Mens Footwear, with Byfield providing the perfect backdrop for the 2018 Autumn/Winter collection.

Marta Dusseldorp is best known for her leading role as ABC television’s Janet King in “Crownies” and her role in the telemovie series “Jack Irish” and “A Place Called Home.”

The family was hosted by Capricorn Enterprise in partnership with recently launched local agency Around the Corner Creative  (Stylist Penny Hunt and Photographer Naomi Pelletier) in a collaborative effort to promote our destination as a diverse landscape for fashion photographic shoots as well as reaching a new potential tourism audience via Marta Dusseldorp’s social media followers. 

Marta’s first Instagram post of the view of Yeppoon from the Villa Mar Colina Penthouse balcony received over 600 likes in the first twelve hours, which demonstrates the effectiveness of using key Influencers to reach a new audience.

During their stay, Marta and Ben and the girls enjoyed a wonderful day on Great Keppel Island (with special thanks to Great Keppel Island Hideaway), loved the Banana beef and local seafood at the award winning Waterline Restaurant Keppel Bay Marina, wandered through a number of local cafes and shops, thoroughly enjoyed the Koorana Crocodile Farm and meeting our local crocodile man John Lever, then spent their last evening with new friends at Vue Wine Bar and Restaurant.

Marta and Ben were very grateful for an opportunity to enjoy a private family holiday in our beautiful, safe and friendly destination and I’m sure are now some of our best advocates!
