TV crew to broadcast ‘paradise’ to homes

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 Morrison 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.
