Win a Holiday to River Cottage Australia

Posted on: 14th July 2013

Fancy a little bit of the good life but prefer to experience it from the comfort of your own living room? Chances are you’re already a River Cottage fan. However, if you’re not familiar with the exploits of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and his hugely successful series about sustainable country living in the UK, well why not tune in for the first international version of the show, River Cottage Australia.

River Cottage Australia HolidayIt has premiered Thursday 28 June at 8.30pm on The Lifestyle Channel, featuring new co-host Paul West. The 29-year old chef beat out 1,000 applicants for the opportunity to work alongside Hugh and despite no television experience is already receiving rave reviews for his enthusiasm, knowledge and presentation.

In the eight-part series, Hugh will hand the River Cottage baton to an Australian counterpart – former Tasmanian chef, Paul West – who’ll face new challenges and uniquely Australian characters as he attempts to set up his own farm near the historic and picturesque village of Central Tilba on the NSW Far South Coast.

The series begins with Hugh travelling to meet Paul at River Cottage Australia; a former dairy farm nestled between the pristine Sapphire Coast and the imposing Mount Gulaga – a sacred place of enormous significance for the indigenous Yuin people. Together Paul and Hugh will hear first-hand their powerful message of sustainability, as well as discover how the mountain is central to their Dreamtime stories.

And now, you could win an amazing holiday to River Cottage Australia to meet Paul West – worth up to $12,000! From gardening and DIY projects to recipes and sustainability initiatives – we want to see them, share them and inspire others! Join now!
