Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 16 September 2010

Popular US talk-show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, is set travel to Australia this December to film at least two episodes that will air in early 2011. The Oprah Winfrey Show reaches a global audience across 145 countries.

Tourism Australia, Qantas Airways, Tourism New South Wales, the Sydney Opera House, Tourism Victoria, Tourism Queensland, R.M.Williams and Network 10 are partners in the venture.

The fact that Ms Winfrey has chosen to share her first visit to Australia with her television audience is a huge backing for our country and provides an amazing opportunity for Australian tourism, said Tourism Australia Chairman, Geoff Dixon. We can showcase why Theres nothing like Australia to audiences around the world and encourage them to come and explore our country for themselves whether its their first time or their fifth time.

Audience members attending the shows farewell season premiere episode earlier this week were given one of the biggest surprises in Oprah show history when Ms Winfrey announced that they were all going to Australia.

Tourism Australias partnership with The Oprah Winfrey Show will see Ms Winfrey, her correspondents, and 300 of Oprahs most loyal viewers travel on an eight-day, seven-night trip to Australia, to film at least two episodes of the program during December.

The Oprah show cameras will be on hand to capture their journeys around Australia as well as bring everyone together at the steps of the Sydney Opera House - or as it will be known that week the Oprah House - for a spectacular show featuring Australian talent and special guests. Episodes will air first in the US in early 2011 and then roll out to other global markets.

We know Australia is a dream destination for millions of people and the partnership with The Oprah Winfrey Show is a real opportunity to show how they can make their dream of visiting Australia a reality, Mr Dixon added.
