News Release

New Zealand Travel Show Showcases Lindeman Island

Auckland, August 12, 2011 –

Radio personality and ‘Man About Town’ Clarke Gayford will give New Zealand viewers a taste of Club Med Lindeman Island on the television show ‘My Kind of Place’ next week.

The ‘Whitsundays Fun’ episode will air on Saturday 20th July on TV One at 7.30pm and showcases some of the activities on offer at Club Med along with other Whitsunday’s highlights.

Fun loving Clarke lapped up the experiences at Club Med including the opportunity to try the flying trapeze which he reported was higher than he had expected! Later that evening Clarke donned a pair of lycra tights and performed in the Club Med trapeze show – much to the delight of the other guests.

Clarke also took the opportunity to work on his swing of a different kind with a private golf lesson at Club Med Lindeman’s impressive 9-hole golf course from which there are panoramic views of the Whitsunday Islands.

After departing Club Med, Clarke visited ‘Reefworld’ a floating pontoon on the Great Barrier Reef. Guests at Club Med Lindeman Island are able to visit this exceptional attraction on a day trip where they can enjoy a day of snorkelling, diving and sunbathing.

‘My Kind of Place’ gives a taste of the beautiful Whitsundays so Club Med have come up with a special offer so viewers can experience it for themselves. For sales until the end of August, holidaymakers can save 50 per cent off the land package price on their Club Med Lindeman Island holiday making an eight-night all-inclusive package price available from $2589 per adult and $2019 per child (4 – 17 years). The travel period is now until 28th October and a minimum 8 night consecutive stay is required for the discounted rate.
