Looks like Seven has found a new role for Jamie Durie, with an appearance fronting a conservation story on Sunday Night this weekend.
Durie’s Outdoor Room has not been renewed by the network amid speculation over the costs involved with the show.
This Sunday he presents a story in which he travelled to Lake Eyre, including a sail on Australia’s ‘inland sea.’
“We had a chopper out here filming with some pretty high tech equipment to give viewers a birds-eye view of exactly just how big and beautiful Lake Eyre really is and it’s quite a phenomenon,” he told the Roxby Downs Sun.
“It’s Australia’s inland sea and I think it’s a story that really deserves to be told.
“It’s not every day you get to see sailors sailing through the desert, and Coolahabah trees – it’s pretty incredible, it will certainly be an experience I’ll never forget.”
Durie said Australian Wildlife Conservancy are the biggest non-government conservation land holders in the country. The story will include a look at reducing extinction rates and giving a back stage view into the work involved in tracking animals.
“I think you can’t do one side of the lake and not talk about the importance of the environment and the wildlife that surrounds it, so it was a good opportunity for us to get a backstage view into some of the great work these boys are doing – that the team are doing.”
Sunday Night airs 6:30pm Sunday on Seven.
