Precinct in Aussie car ad


Oamaru’s Victorian Precinct and countryside has hit Australian TV screens, as the backdrop for a Holden advertisement.

Filmed last month, for Holden’s latest mid-size sedan, the ad features a number of locals and took a film crew of about 80 people two days to complete.

In the ad, Holden encourage viewers to “escape Beigeville”, which is Oamaru, and experience the Holden Malibu.

For Whitestone Civic Trust Heritage co-ordinator Faye Ormandy, the advertisement, screened only in Australia, was yet another example of how Oamaru is a very film-friendly destination.
