HE’S never stepped foot in the Whit­sun­days but Aus­tralian ac­tor Ja­son Mont­gomery can not wait to ex­pe­ri­ence our re­gion.

“I wish I could stay longer,” Ja­son said.

To fill in the gaps be­tween act­ing jobs, Ja­son cre­ated his own busi­ness, Trivia Mas­ter Aus­tralia, and he’s bring­ing the fun to Air­lie Beach.

On Satur­day, Septem­ber 17, Ja­son will host a trivia night at Lure, Abell Point Ma­rina, and he says it will be un­like any other trivia ex­pe­ri­ence.

“What we try to in­cor­po­rate to make them dif­fer­ent is more games and more fun,” he said.

“We know we’ve won over the peo­ple who en­joy trivia but it’s the peo­ple who don’t re­ally like it who we con­cen­trate on.

“There might be peo­ple who are in­se­cure so we make sure there’s plenty of games, singing and danc­ing to in­cor­po­rate to in­clude ev­ery­one.”

Best known for his roles in Home and Away, Un­der­belly, House of Han­cock and All Saints, Ja­son has be­come one of the most recog­nis­able Aus­tralian celebrity faces.

Ja­son said he hoped to re­turn to the Whit­sun­days again in the near fu­ture to ex­pe­ri­ence ev­ery­thing we have to of­fer.

Func­tion Cen­tre man­ager at Lure, Nol­wenn Foligne, said it was an ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity to have Ja­son make an ap­pear­ance.

“We’re re­ally look­ing for­ward to host­ing this trivia night and it’s not like a clas­sic trivia night be­cause we have Ja­son host­ing,” she said.
