    The ‘Last Dance’ campaign will run in metropolitan and regional areas until Saturday 29 October 2016, including 30 second TV advertisements, complemented by online and social media advertising. A portion of the Facebook advertising will also be targeted towards prompting Aboriginal people to quit smoking. This will be achieved through the targeted placement of the advertisements to reach this audience. The ‘Last Dance’ television advertisements will run on Aboriginal media channels. Smokers will be encouraged to visit the Make Smoking History website.
