Oprah Australia - Where Did She Go?


She filmed most of her shows at the steps of the Sydney Opera House and attracted a huge number of Sydney siders who tried to catch a glimpse of the show.

Her audience were treated to a cocktail party in the Botanical Gardens behind the Opera House in the Domain. You can recreate this by having a picnic in the grounds. Or you can use the restaurant facilities here too.

They also got to do the Bridgeclimb. In fact, it was the largest group ever to do the bridge climb at one time - 250 people.

The Great Barrier Reef

The audience were split up and sent to different locations. Oprah went to the Great Barrier Reef Australia for her first trip and loved it.

This is a great place to visit to discover a whole new world. Stay in Port Douglas to have the ultimate Oprah Australia experience

This is a beautiful island in the heart of the amazing Whitsundays Australia Islands.

Hamilton Island Australia is probably one of the bigger islands and as such has something to offer everyone - from couples to families, there is literary accommodation and experiences to please all.

The snorkelling is quite simply amazing, the beaches are whiter than white and the water is that wonderful clear turquoise.
