COFFS Coast residents can spread the word on the best-kept secret in NSW via a new tourism drive.

In a move to boost holidaymakers and tourists, Destination NSW has begun sharing with the world NSW's best sites via a social networking campaign.

"We know the Mid North Coast is one of the best destinations in Australia and now we have a fabulous opportunity to tell the world," Mid North Coast Tourism's Belinda Novicky said.

"On Monday, Destination NSW launched a Global Youth Campaign designed to get people talking online about all there is to experience in NSW.

"On March 1, four bloggers from around the world will embark on a one-month non-stop content generating mission in NSW.

"Travelling around NSW in a bus, these social media experts will be filming, posting, tweeting, blogging and experiencing the best NSW has to offer.

"The Facebook and Twitter community of NSW will determine where they go, what they do and who they meet, so we encourage all proud Mid North Coast residents to hit the keyboards and ensure the Mid North Coast is well and truly on the bloggers' radar," Ms Novicky said.
