& # 39; It's like confusing the South Pole with Africa & # 39 ;: Golden Pages folders with a VERY eye-catching error are delivered to tens of thousands of homes

  • The Sunshine Coast edition of Golden Pages directory & # 39; s represents the Gold Coast
  • Cover shows a smiling sky driver when landing on Kirra Beach, on the Gold Coast
  • Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford said the region & # 39; s & # 39; are very different & # 39;

The Sunshine Coast editions of the Yellow Pages directory have been delivered to tens of thousands of homes, despite the fact that they represent the region's biggest competitor.

The cover of the newly printed map shows a smiling sky diver landing on the golden sands of Kirra Beach, on the Gold Coast.

The city skyline is prominent behind him, but the misleading coverage forgets that the Sunshine Coast has no skyscrapers, but imposes strict restrictions on the height of buildings.

The Sunshine Coast is proud as the more natural region with regard to tourism, where visitors can enjoy the beach without the extravagance on the Gold Coast.

Regarding the failed coverage, Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford said: & # 39; everyone makes mistakes & # 39; but the region & # 39; s are & # 39; are vastly different & # 39 ;.

& # 39; It's like confusing the South Pole with Africa & # 39 ;, he said The courier post.

& # 39; The Gold Coast is just like Las Vegas in Australia and we are the place to visit for a more natural experience. & # 39;

Sensis, the marketing behind the combined white and yellow pages, confirmed the image of Gold Coast Skydive on Kirra Beach.

Sensis spokesperson Will Clarke said: & # 39; In previous years we have followed a localized approach with our Yellow Pages covers, but this year we decided to put some of our customers on the front as an extension of our advertising campaigns & # 39 ;.

Clarke said the coverage represented the breadth and diversity of the companies in their telephone directories.

He added that it was not intended to cause rivalry between the regions, but understood that the local population could be angry.
