Influencer famils fit for a Princess

The enchanting tales of our childhoods jumped out of our bookcases and into our backyard when Fairy Tales took over the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA). Exclusive to Brisbane, the exhibition explored centuries of beloved folk stories through art, design and film.

Strategic Event partner Tourism & Events Queensland engaged Aruga to leverage the Brisbane exclusive to position Brisbane as a world-class arts and cultural destination to interstate travellers.

Enlisting the help of two A-List influencers, Aruga secured Disney-obsessed content creator Olivia White and Australian top model Jesinta Franklin to experience the ultimate long weekend in Brisbane. With Fairy Tales at the heart of each influencer’s visit, Aruga curated bespoke famil itineraries that included the city’s best accommodation, dining and cultural experiences.

The campaign reached over 1 million people on Instagram across 8 Instagram posts and 56 total Instagram story posts – a Happily Ever After indeed!
