Australia’s longest-running travel and lifestyle program, Getaway, returns for its 27th series on Saturday February 17, at 5.30pm on Nine and 9Now.
In the premiere episode, Catriona Rowntree will confront her fear of sharks, snorkelling in the tropical waters off Fiji. Jason Dundas heads to Wanaka on New Zealand’s South Island to tackle Wildwire – the world’s highest waterfall climb. Having spent the best part of his life on the Mornington Peninsula, David Reyne shows off the sights and delights of the region. Meanwhile, Charli Robinson is in Queensland to check out the Sunshine Coast’s newest holiday park.
Catriona Rowntree, who joined the Getaway team in 1996, says she is not surprised by the continued popularity of the show.
“Twenty-six years after Getaway premiered, we continue to explore the globe, and Aussies’ passion for travel seems to be infinite. We are all so grateful each time our phones ring to ask if we are able to share our journeys. It really feels like a privilege to do so,” she said.
