NEW ROLE: John Jarratt in Wolf Creek is now an asbestos awareness ambassador.

You may know him as the murderous Mick Taylor who terrorised backpackers in Wolf Creek.

You might prefer to know him as the fun guy from Play School.

But, organisers of a travelling information program aimed at warning homeowners, renovators, tradies and farmers about the dangers of asbestos hope you get to know him in his new role as an awareness campaigner.

Mr Jarratt is one of Australia’s best known actors.

He will be at Robertson Park on Monday for the launch of a regional NSW tour by Betty – The ADRI House, a mobile information centre highlighting the risks asbestos poses to renovators.

The house will be on display from 10am- 3.30pm.
