Celebrities To Headline Airport Open Day 28/09

08 September 2014

TV personality Natalie Gruzlewski and former Australian Rugby Union footballer and Toowoomba boy Tim Horan are set to be two of the headline attractions at the Wellcamp Airport Community Open Day on Sunday 28 September.

 

The pair will MC the event with special appearances throughout the day to meet fans and sign autographs.

 

As the well-loved host of Nine’s ‘When Love Comes to Town’ and Getaway personality, Natalie has had a long association with regional Queensland and new travel destinations.

 

“I’m really excited to be involved in this massive event – it will be a fantastic day with lots of entertainment for the whole family” Ms Gruzlewski said.

 

With two rugby world cups under his belt, former Wallabies player Tim Horan grew up in Toowoomba and still has strong family connections with the area.  

 

“I’m delighted to support such an iconic project for my home town and be part of Australian aviation history,” Mr Horan said.

 

Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport General Manager Phil Gregory welcomed the two celebrities on board saying it would add another dimension to the day.

 

“It will be the only chance for the general public to go ‘behind the scenes’ before the airport becomes operational later this year,” Mr Gregory said.

 

With gates open from 9.30am to 4pm, the jam-packed program includes runway and terminal tours, aerial and aircraft displays, model plane demonstrations and performances by live bands.

 

For convenience, the morning program will be repeated in the afternoon.

 

Australia’s newest airport, Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport is the nation’s first greenfield public airport built in 50 years and first privately funded public airport.

 

More than 18,000 people attended the airport’s ‘Under Construction’ open day event in November 2013, with more people expected this year.
