GPJ Australia delivers treetop WAnderlust for ATE

Following GPJ’s appointment as the experiential agency for Tourism Western Australia in January, the agency has just delivered the signature event for the Australian Tourism Exchange (ATE) 2019.

The WA Showcase named ‘WAnderlust: A Journey of Extraordinary Sensations’ was an exclusive 1200 person function sitting amongst the treetops of Kings Park in Perth. Showcasing the beauty and diversity of Western Australia, this was the first time an event of this scale and size has been held in the Roe Gardens of Kings Park.

“What an extraordinary experience it has been to work with Tourism WA, bringing to life the best that WA has to offer, for such an iconic event,” said Natalie Pronin, regional manager Western Australia, GPJ.

Guests dined on a bespoke menu curated by chef Stephen Watson of Heyder & Shears Exclusive Caterers featuring pearl meat, West Australian rock lobster and forage foods, paired with wines from WA’s Margaret River region.

Phil Walley Stack performed a memorable Welcome to Country in front of the Perth cityscape, with local school children incorporated in the performance.
