BLOW-OUT

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Destination Canada - SU­SAN KUROSAWA

TORONTO, Canada’s largest city, has ex­pan­sive views across Lake On­tario. For the past 35 years, tourists have flocked to an ob­ser­va­tion deck at CN Tower’s nee­dle-like spire, which at 553m is still ranked as one of the world’s tallest struc­tures. From Au­gust 1, brave vis­i­tors at­tached to har­nesses will be able to en­joy the scenery via the adrenal­in­pump­ing ex­te­rior Edge Walk, 116 storeys up and touted as the ‘‘world’s high­est full-cir­cle hands-free walk’’. The thrilling ex­pe­ri­ence takes 90 min­utes; for $C175 ($170), the vic­to­ri­ous also take home a video, pho­tos, cer­tifi­cate and, of course, heart­stop­ping mem­o­ries.

ARM­CHAIR TRAV­ELLER Mid­somer Mur­ders: The stony­faced Neil Dud­geon is bril­liant as the new DCI John Barn­aby, a fine re­place­ment for the re­cently re­tired John Net­tles char­ac­ter; and there are as many corpses and vil­lage mys­ter­ies as ever in this oddly dan­ger­ous English county with its forever­lurk­ing mur­der­ers. Sun­day, 8.30pm, ABC1. Big, Rich Texas: A riv­et­ingly ghastly fly-on-the-man­sion­wall se­ries opener on diva moth­ers and their princessy daugh­ters in good ol’ Dal­las; it’s hair-dry­ers at dawn and not so much a mat­ter of ‘‘who shot JR?’’ as who’s go­ing to stiletto-stab who first. Tues­day, 8.30pm, Style.
