Lisa Chappell Returns To The Scene In South Australia

‘My Kind Of Place’

Saturday 10 September, Tv1, 7.30pm

Renowned stage and screen actress and songstress, Lisa Chappell this week shares her very special places in the South Australia episode of ‘My Kind of Place.’ Lisa, who shot to stardom as Jess in McLeod’s Daughters described her return to South Australia as “something of a homecoming.” After touching down in the State’s capital, Adelaide, Lisa checks back in on old friends in the small rural town of Freeling and the famous Gungellan Pub. Here, she hangs out with the locals, shares a beer in a stubby holder and chuckles over souvenir tea towels bearing her likeness.

Lisa describes the raw spirit and irreverent humour that is country Australia as being something she misses most of her time spent there, but reveled in the opportunity to be a tourist in the region for the very first time.

Being a tourist meant riding a bike through the vineyards of the Barossa, making her own wine at iconic Penfolds winery and then taking in the spectacle of nature that is the mighty Murray River where Lisa captains her own houseboat complete with Jacuzzi and much, much more!

‘My Kind of Place’ is a ten part television series, screening on TV ONE, Saturday’s 7.30pm and is produced by leading New Zealand television production company, Imagination Television (makers of MasterChef New Zealand and Animal Rescue). Over the past eight weeks viewers have enjoyed seeing Australia through the Kiwi eyes of some of their favourite celebrities that have included radio personalities, broadcasters, actors, actresses and sports heroes.

Mark Stocker: History Spurned - The Arrival Of Abel Tasman In New Zealand

On the face of it, Everhardus Koster's exceptional genre painting The Arrival of Abel Tasman in New Zealand should have immense appeal. It cannot find a buyer, however, not because of any aesthetic defects, but because of its subject matter and the fate of the Māori it depicts. More
