The Great Outdoors returning before the cameras

Long-running Seven travel series The Great Outdoors is filming new episodes.

Seven will film 8 episodes of the popular series with Rachael Finch and Tom Williams (pictured), the Sunday Telegraph reports.

The show was axed in 2009 but will return to concentrate on outback Australia and towns. It also features country singer Adam Brand and Sydney Weekender adventurer Peter Wells.

The show is expected to screen on a Saturday evening slot later this year, with more to come if it works.


  1. Just Realised that the new series has actually started airing at 5:30 on sundays.
    Channel 7 has not seemed to advertise this fact very well. they will find they wont get the ratings they are after if the show is not promoted.

  2. I think this would be a good show for Grant (from Sunrise) to feature on as he does a lot of travelling as part of his weather segment. He is a lot more better at that than he is doing the weather.

  3. I know the travel shows aren’t too popular nowadays but I’ve always enjoyed watching them. I’m a bit disappointed Getaway is only half an hour but it’s better than nothing.
