Senator WRIGHT - Of course, the Australian Tourist Commission cultivates and sees great value in the festivals, examples of which were referred to by the honourable senator. The Federal Government gives assistance to the Adelaide Festival of Arts which we now recognise as having achieved international prestige from 'the point of view of attracting to Australia and to Adelaide artists of great renown. With regard to the Barossa Valley Festival held biennially, it will be of interest to honourable senators to know that the Australian Tourist Commission had a film unit in the Barossa Valley at the time of the Festival for the purpose of recording incidents associated with it for transmission on a very wide circuit in countries from which we draw our tourists. Permit me to say ir conclusion, Mr President, that with great pleasure I acknowledge the invitation I had from Senator Laucke to visit the Barossa Valley Festival last week, which I found to be a most stimulating experience.
