Together with award winning luxury travel operator APT and Tourism Western Australia, Better Homes and Gardens will serve up a true taste of adventure this week, showcasing the extraordinary cuisine, culture and coastline of Western Australia’s Kimberley region.
Presenter Ed Halmagyi, better known as Fast Ed, travels from coast to wilderness camp to showcase to viewers some of the special ingredients the region has to offer.
In the episode, which will be broadcast on Channel 7 at 7pm on Friday 18 September, viewers are invited to join Fast Ed as he cooks Barramundi on the deck of APT’s small ocean ship, the MS Caledonian Sky at Raft Point.
Viewers will also watch as Fast Ed learns a thing or two about bush tucker, joining local indigenous guide Lionel on a walk at Mitchell Plateau. Together they cook up a storm at Mitchell Falls, serving up Fast Ed’s ‘fire grilled beef’ against the backdrop of one of Australia’s most stunning locations.
Later, back at the Mitchell Falls Wilderness Camp, Fast Ed uses the camp fire to cook a ‘Salt Dough’ chocolate caramel cake in the coals, before sharing it with visitors to the Kimberley who in turn share their experiences of what it’s like to explore one of Australia’s last true wilderness areas.
Commenting on its ongoing special partnership with the show, APT Chief Marketing Officer Debra Fox, said, “The Kimberley is such a special region and we were delighted to work in partnership with Tourism Western Australia to help showcase some of its highlights with Better Homes and Gardens. We hope that viewers will be inspired by what they see, so much so that they reach out to their local travel agent to find out more about how they can book a trip of their own.”
Tourism Western Australia’s Marketing Director Jennifer Horner said the agency was delighted to partner with APT to showcase the extraordinary Kimberley region.
“The Better Homes and Gardens broadcast will reveal the breathtaking sights and unique experiences that visitors to the Kimberley can enjoy,” Jennifer said.
“With gorges, waterfalls, Aboriginal culture and a spectacular coastline, including Broome’s famous Cable Beach, it is no surprise that the Kimberley was hailed number two in Lonely Planet’s worldwide top 10 regions to visit in 2014.
“Direct flights from the east coast to Broome mean it is now easier than ever for Australians to experience this remarkable region for themselves.”
Travel agents with clients wanting to visit the Kimberley region for themselves can book APT’s all-inclusive 25-day Kimberley Complete with Coastal Cruise. Five departures feature the MS Caledonian Sky in 2016 and all qualify for free return flights if booked before 15 December 2015 (terms and conditions apply).
