Ben Fordham speaks with Minister for Tourism Steven Ciobo.

“We’ve had more than 400 million engagements already, and 80% of that is in North America and that is our target audience.”

As for whether the star-studded lineup charged for their appearances, Mr Ciobo tells Ben they charged the absolute minimum.

“They charged the absolute minimum they are legally allowed to charge under the Screen Actors Guild.

“What they did was save Australia taxpayers millions and millions of dollars.”
