The national and international cast for Ben Elton’s new movie Three Summers already spent last weekend exploring the Peel region before starting their first week of filming in Fairbridge.
Mandurah and Peel Tourism Organisation (MAPTO) provided the visitors with 100 tourism kits to ensure they were well briefed on all the attractions, services and facilities available in the region.
The kits were developed together with local businesses and operators, and offered discounts to the crew on attractions, tours and meals.
The movie’s lead actors Robert Sheehan, from Misfits and the Red Riding Trilogy, and Rebeca Breeds, from Pretty Little Liars and Home and Away, were the first ones to check out the information pack with movie director Ben Elton.
Mr Sheehan said he had already hit the road and visited some of the region’s attractions, including the Mandurah estuary.
“I have already been out and about enjoying the local restaurants and the food, atmosphere and the view of the Mandurah estuary at night is superb,” he said.
“People travel the world to find places like this.
“I am looking forward to exploring more of the surrounds in the Peel region while I am here.”
MAPTO chairman Leighton Yates said he was delighted about the movie being recorded in the region, and he said the crew would have every weekend free to explore Peel.
“The movie’s international and domestic stars were very impressed by the diversity and quality of the visitor experiences highlighted in the MAPTO kits,” he said.
“Since it is their first time in our region they were keen to maximise the time they have to explore Peel and they appreciated the Visitor Guide which captures all the highlights of our destination.”
