Bloody hell – Lara Bingle’s in Queenstown


Australian reality TV star Lara Bingle – from Tourism Australia’s ‘Where the bloody hell are ya’ ad campaign – is visiting Queenstown.

Bingle, a model who now features in her own show Being Lara Bingle, is understood to have dotted down in Queenstown today, the second day of the Winter Festival.

Air New Zealand has confirmed she’s in the resort to film the next instalment of its Kiwi Sceptics campaign.

Air NZ Australia marketing boss Kelly Millier says: “We’re thrilled to be working with Lara and our friends at Destination Queenstown for the next instalment of Kiwi Sceptics.

“The first four episodes have showcased a fresh and progressive side of NZ we wanted Australians to see.

“Queenstown is one of the jewels in NZ’s crown and right now we’re experiencing the peak of the ski season bookings, so we’re hoping Lara’s daredevil nature will showcase a little of what Queenstown has to offer on and off the slopes.”

It’s Bingle’s first visit to Queenstown and she’s looking forward to hanging out on the slopes and checking out its top bar and restaurants.
