Catriona Rowntree back on Getaway

2013-02-26_1703Getaway returns to Nine this weekend and despite telling us she had left the Nine stable, Catriona Rowntree will appear in a number of episodes.

Having hosted Nine’s one-off New Year’s Eve broadcast for 2013, Rowntree will continue to do one-off projects with the network, including a trip to South America in March.

Interestingly, Jamie Durie is now also a guest presenter for the travel show, after recent appearances in Christmas with the Australian Women’s Weekly, a Domestic Blitz special and the failed Top Design.

Brett Lee and Jesinta Campbell are also guest presenters.

In a series of special episodes during the year, Brett and Jesinta will experience all the colours of India whilst exploring Delhi, Varanasi, Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur and Kochi. After more than 100 trips to India, Brett will finally see one of the eight wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal. He also visits Mewsic, the charity he started to bring music to the lives of disadvantaged young people. Meanwhile, Jesinta will indulge in a little early morning yoga at the picturesque Lodhi Gardens and locate some of the top fashion designers in Delhi.

Catriona will travel to South America and experience the vibrant culture and incredible natural wonders of Peru, Argentina and Brazil, including the spectacular Andes Mountains, the floating islands of Uros in Peru, the Sacred Valley of the Incas, Machu Picchu, the thunderous waterfalls in IguazĂș National Park and the great cities of Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro.

Jamie will go on an incredible European river cruise along the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers from Amsterdam to Budapest, while Jason Dundas explores North America, bringing viewers all the best things to see and do in the USA and Canada.

Grab your passport, pack your suitcase and get ready to travel with Getaway in 2013.

Saturdays at 5:30pm on Nine.


  1. I will allow that the Taj is sometimes referred to as the eighth wonder, because it isn’t on the list of 7 – but that doesn’t change that we’re dealing with 7 wonders, not 8.

  2. For goodness sake – there are 7 wonders of the world, not 8. Who are these people in 9 publicity? Do they know nothing? Grrr.

    Whinge aside, David do you have broadcast dates for those Indian specials?
