Oprah Touches Down Under....

Oprah Winfrey arrived yesterday on the Great Barrier Reef’s Hamilton Island in Queensland, Australia on the first stop of her tour “Down Under” with The Oprah Winfrey Show cameras and audience.

So far during her stay on the island she met Elvis the koala and went to a beach party on Whitehaven Beach with The Ten Tenors and celebrity chef Curtis Stone.

Set amidst pristine surroundings, Hamilton Island offers a multitude of activities and luxurious accommodation options to suit the most discerning traveler. Visitors can choose from a plethora of destination activities with sea-kayaking, game fishing, scenic helicopter flights and 'Breakfast with the Koalas' at the Koala Gallery.

 Guests who prefer a more relaxed atmosphere can take advantage one of the gorgeous pools or simply relax on brilliant white silica sand beaches. Tourism Queensland is looking forward to showing both Oprah and her guests why Queensland is where Australia shines. Take advantage of flights to the Great Barrier Reef departing from LAX starting at $1,198 roundtrip.
