Helloworld unveils destinations for TV launch


Helloworld, Australia’s new premium travel program, premieres this Sunday.


Join presenters Sonia Kruger, Bec Hewitt, Lauren Phillips, Ray Martin, Matt Wilson, Stevie Jacobs, Ashley Hart, Denis Walter and Vince Sorrenti as they showcase amazing destinations and experiences on their weekly journeys.


Episode one kicks off with a foodie tour of France and Italy and a canoe ride in Canada’s Rocky Mountains, screening at 4.30pm on Nine and 9Now.


Sonia Kruger checks out the beauty of the Canadian Rockies, beginning her sightseeing trip at spectacular Lake Louise, where she finds one of the most peaceful ways to enjoy the lake – by canoe. To escape from the cold, Sonia pops into the luxurious Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, whose famous guests have included Queen Elizabeth and Alfred Hitchcock, for their famous fondue.


“Canada is simply breathtaking. One of the most picturesque places I have ever been. I can’t wait to share my experiences with you” Sonia Kruger said of filming in Canada.


If you’re in need of a tropical holiday, Bec Hewitt has the perfect place in mind right here in Queensland: Hamilton Island, the world-class destination in the Whitsundays. Bec’s day begins at the Beach Club, a beachside resort on the shores of Catseye Beach. After a tour of the accommodation options which include stunning views of the Coral Sea, she grabs a bite to eat at the local family favourite, Manta Ray.



Comedian Vince Sorrenti travels to France and Italy for the ultimate foodie tour. Stohrer, the oldest patisserie in Paris, is first on his list for a delicious chocolate éclair, then it’s off to the La Fermette fromagerie for some cheese and A la Mere de Famille, the City of Love’s famous chocolatier, for scrumptious hand-crafted treats.


Vince then crosses the border to Orvieto in Italy for a pasta-making masterclass where he can’t resist trying the final product. “It was such a privilege to be exploring the hidden gems of Europe with my friends from Insight. My waistline was a little larger after the wonderful local foodie tour in Paris and cooking demonstration in Tuscany, luckily there was plenty of exploration by foot so I could work off some of the calories” said Vince.


This week we also find Stevie Jacobs in Port Vila, the breathtaking capital of Vanuatu, exploring the best this beachside city has to offer. He learns about the cultural delights of the area at the Ekasup Cultural Village before visiting Hideaway Island, an island surrounded by stunning marine wildlife that includes the world’s only underwater post office.

Helloworld encores nationally on 9Life on Wednesday at 12.30pm and Sunday at 11.00am.
