Studio cleans up nicely for TV segment
WHEN Kings Studio owner Malcolm King heard the Sydney Weekender crew was coming to town, there was a frantic tidy-up to get the gallery spick and span.
He said the studio looked like a "construction site" just days before the gorgeous television presenter Melanie Symons and her crew came through the doors to film a segment for Sydney Weekender.
"We're building a bed and breakfast so when we heard they were coming to do filming it was a bit frantic tidying it all up," Mr King said. The Channel Seven crew visited the Maclean gallery yesterday as part of the Legendary Pacific Coast series.
Producer Emily McDonald said the series was to highlight the hidden gems that many travellers passed by. "People always go to Byron Bay or those bigger, more well-known places, so this is to plug the other places that not only have magnificent beaches but art and food too," she said.
The crew will head to Yamba today to film at Yamba Shores Tavern and Club Yamba.
Clarence Coast Tourism manager Jenny Massie said the Clarence Valley should gear up for extra people in town once the segment airs in late June.
"Every time Sydney Weekender has done something on us, we've had more inquiries and more visitors which is great," Ms Massie said. "It is great promotion for us."
