Oprah’s Ultimate Australia Trip was a once-in-a-lifetime experience I will never forget! Watching the behind the scenes details on how the Ultimate Viewer Show was put together confirms what I have always known… Oprah knows how to build a strong cohesive team around her to make things happen at the highest level!
From the moment we were selected each of became a part of the Oprah Show marketing extravaganza which has helped them to stay at the top of their game for 25 years! A special website was created where each of our thoughts, needs and desires were dissected on everything from our culinary tastes to what we wanted to do most during out stay Down Under! We were treated to a wide array of offerings including everything from: surfing, going shopping, galleries, wine tours, biking tours, visiting the rainforest, animals and nature and my favorite was the opportunity to learn about Aboriginal people and culture.
For me that’s when everything about this trip connected with my deepest dreams and desires. I fell in love with the Aboriginal people after reading the book, Mutant Message Down Under by Marlo Morgan.
Oprah didn’t disappoint the 14 women who were hand selected to go to the Northern Territory! We were flown on a Qantus flight to a private plane and finally a helicopter to be transported to wholly Aboriginal owned-land,Arnhem Land.
We visited Gabarmung Cave, which was rediscovered in 2006 and since then has been the site of an international archaeological dig which has uncovered one of the most spectacular displays of rock art ever seen before. The cave features a naturally-formed temple covered in hundreds of Aboriginal rock paintings.
The Oprah Show will air 4 shows on the Ultimate Australian Adventure on January 18,19,20 & 21st
