The TODAY show will be travelling around our wonderful big country next week to celebrate everything that’s great about Australia and Australians, starting Monday, March 9 on Channel 9.
In a promotion financially backed by Tourism Australia, TODAY will be broadcasting LIVE from two different locations every day, with Karl Stefanovic and Lisa Wilkinson exploring some of Australia’s most stunning destinations. Richard Wilkins will be arranging all the “on the road” entertainment, while Stevie Jacobs will be surprising lucky viewers in towns and cities across the nation with the “Knock of Cash” giveaways.
This massive week will feature stories of everyday local heroes as well as superstar guests and performers, including Jessica Mauboy who will perform her new single, The Day Before I Met You, from her album Beautiful - live at Uluru.
TODAY co-host Lisa Wilkinson said: “We know we have the most stunning scenery in the world right here on our doorstep and we can’t wait to showcase that incredible diversity.
“In five action-packed days we’ll cover areas including the stark beauty of Uluru, the charm of country Victoria, and we’ll have our very own nautical adventure and spend a night on a stunning cruise liner docked in Sydney Harbour. And when it comes to holiday dollars, you just won’t get better value for your Aussie dollar right now than right here in our own backyard, and we want to celebrate that.”
Co-host Karl Stefanovic said: “Australia rocks. I plan to visit every pie shop and pub in five days. It’s going to be like Schoolies for oldies. Pump it up, people!”
