Warrnambool tourism businesses have joined forces to bring national attention to the city amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Warrnambool Tours and Lake Pertobe Motor Boats have pitched an advertising video to Channel 7's breakfast program Sunrise for the show's Virtual A-Z Tour of Australia.
The four-minute video packages highlights a number of notable landmarks around the city and markets Warrnambool as a starting point for a whole range of day trip destinations.
Warrnambool Tours owner Fiona van Kempen hopes the video will bring people to the city once coronavirus travel restrictions lift.
"The more exposure we can get here the better," she said.
"Featuring on Sunrise will give Warrnambool valuable national exposure to show viewers how much there is to see and do in our wonderful city.
"It will show Warrnambool is the gateway to many day trips around the region and not just a drive through or overnight stopover."
Landmarks featuring in the video package include The Flume, Lake Pertobe, Thunder Point, Liebig Street and Gutsy The Wombat.
The video also acknowledges the city's title of Australia's 'Most Liveable City'.
Nearly 1500 jobs and $1.74 million in wages have been lost in Warrnambool in less than a month due to the coronavirus pandemic according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics with the tourism industry being one of the hardest hit sectors across the nation.
Sunrise has been travelling around Australia through the video conferencing platform Zoom.
Previously, weather presenter Sam Mac had visited places across the nation in a bid to promote different areas.
