Following on from the TODAY Show’s hugely successful WE LOVE AUSTRALIA tour of the country in March, the team will be hitting the road again, starting Monday, May 25, on Channel Nine.
TODAY will be broadcasting LIVE from every state and territory across Australia. Karl Stefanovic, Lisa Wilkinson and Richard Wilkins will head off to explore picturesque places in the Northern Territory, South Australia, Queensland and NSW, while Stevie Jacobs will criss-cross the continent discovering special locations in Western Australia, Tasmania, Canberra and Victoria.
Then, on Friday, May 29, the team reunite with Sylvia Jeffreys and Tim Gilbert to celebrate the WE LOVE AUSTRALIA trip at the always action-packed Gold Coast theme park, Dreamworld.
This massive week will feature stories of everyday local heroes as well as superstar guests and performers, including Aussie country singer Catherine Britt, ARIA Award-winning Christine Anu, Australian Idol’s Paulini, as well as a special exclusive performance by Silverchair frontman, Daniel Johns.
TODAY co-host Lisa Wilkinson said: “We just love Australia, and the truth is, why would you want to holiday anywhere else? This time we’ve really upped the ante by heading for some of Australia’s most iconic destinations – Port Douglas, Byron Bay, the Barossa (and yes, I will be keeping a close eye on Karl), and somewhere I’ve been aching to visit for years, Kakadu.”
Honestly, we shouldn’t be getting paid to do this job. Oh, hang on, the boss has just said we’re not. That’s OK, we’re going anyway!”
Co-host Karl Stefanovic said: “The first pub crawl around Australia was so successful we’ve decided to do it again. And I still haven’t found Dickie love so, here’s hoping.”
