The crew of caravan and camping TV show, What’s Up Downunder, were in town late last week, filming scenes for an upcoming episode featuring the Sapphire Coast.
The episode, hosted by former A Country Practice star Michelle Pettigrove, will showcase town attractions including the Snug Cove wharf precinct, Full Fathom Five art gallery, Sprout Eden, and the Eden Tourist Park.
Producer Liz Kefford said that with its natural beauty and connection with the show’s hosts, the Sapphire Coast was an obvious choice.
“Our hosts, Michelle and her husband Frankie J Holden, live in Pambula,” she said.
“We go all over Australia doing this show, but the South Coast is just two episodes ready to go.
“Michelle’s hosting this episode and Frankie J was in the last one we filmed, which was done in Gerroa.
“It’s just beautiful and you’ve got your blue-sky winters, which are something we’ll be looking to showcase.”
The Magnet caught up with the crew when they interviewed Sprout Eden fresh produce manager Barbara Greenwood at the Imlay Street business on Friday.
Liz said the crew first noticed Sprout when they were in town last year, and thought they had to come back and do a story on what they considered to be a unique business.
“We’ve had an absolute ball and everyone in Eden has really welcomed us,” she said.
“We love coming here and we can’t wait to see this episode go to air.
“We air on Saturdays at 4pm on Network Ten, and this episode will be on either July 12 or 19.”
