On the Road is a 20 metre vehicle that transforms into a stage, offering free community events to over 5 million regional Australians as it travels 25,000 kilometres touring every state and territory during 2007.
On the Road will bring The Australian Women's Weekly's food, fashion, health and beauty expertise to regional readers, while the Commonwealth Bank's regional financial experts will provide financial advice and host fun, interactive workshops to help its rural customers meet their financial needs. The first 50 community members to arrive at On the Road will receive a FREE sample bag containing an Australian Women's Weekly mini-cookbook and mug, a Commonwealth Bank Dollarmite magnet, a full size Revlon lipstick and other beauty samples (one per person).
Free entertainment during the day will include live musical performances, cookery demonstrations, and Commonwealth Bank finance workshops.
