This weekend, we are off to Australia. In a way. Tourism Australia is curating a set of virtual tours that will be streamed over the weekend. The programme, called Live from Aus, will feature the country&rsquos most unique offerings, its natural beauty and wildlife, its eccentric cities and the very best of food and drink.
On 16 May, train like Chris Hemsworth with Luke Zocchi & Dan Churchill from Centr and learn about indigenous independents with celebrity chef Jock Zonfrillo. There&rsquos cheesemaking, learning about Koalas, golfing and exploring the Great Barrier Reef among others. The next day boasts of similar fare, starting with sunrise yoga, a Q&A with zookeeper Chad Staples and wildlife-lover Laura Brown, wine & art pairing with Chester Osborn at the d&rsquoArenberg Cube and a kangaroo-feeding session with Chris &lsquoBrolga&rsquo Barns. Additionally, viewers can enjoy a tour of Kangaroo Island and a glorious night at the Sydney Opera House.
An extensive itinerary like this could never be possible in real life, but this programme brings us one step closer to this exhilarating destination. A weekend away, truly. The day-long, one-hour broadcasts are a part of The Love Australia Project and will be live on Tourism Australia&rsquos social media channels with additional information and links on how to plan a real-life trip to these destinations. Check out their website for the detailed programme list and Facebook for the broadcasts.
