TV crew to broad­cast ‘par­adise’ to homes

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

CHAN­NEL Seven’s life­style pro­gram Queens­land Week­ender will be mak­ing waves in the Whit­sun­days next week.

The crew, due to ar­rive at the luxury ser­viced apart­ments Mi­rage Whit­sun­days on Mon­day, will spend all week meet­ing those who bring “some­thing dif­fer­ent” to town.

On Tues­day night they will be film­ing two cul­tural shows at the Whit­sun­day Arts and Cul­ture Cen­tre (WACC) from 5.30pm.

The WACC has de­cided to host Whis­pers of the Whit­sun­days and Whis­pers of the Out­back as free events to give lo­cals a chance to have their 15 sec­onds of fame.

On Wed­nes­day, the crew will head out with Bruce Mor- ri­son from Whit­sun­day Tours, to fo­cus on the of­ten forgotten main­land area of the Whit­sun­days from Cape Con­way to Cape Glouces­ter.

They will then do a jet­ski tour to South Molle Is­land with Ocean Dy­nam­ics.

Queens­land Week­ender pro­ducer Paul Mayze said he was al­ways ex­cited to come back to the Whit­sun­days “be­cause it is par­adise”.

With gaps still in their timetable, Mr Mayze said the crew also hoped to meet with lead­ing lo­cal res­tau­ra­teurs.

The pro­gram airs on Satur­days at 5.30pm.

To at­tend the WACC’s free cul­tural shows, email or call 4946 4444.
