Returning: Going Places with Ernie Dingo

Just how good is this trailer? The shots look exquisite in HD.

NITV’s Going Places with Ernie Dingo returns in September with 14 brand new episodes from Tassie to the Top End.

That’s a bumper increase from the 3 episodes which screened in 2016.

Producer Rima Tamou said “We wanted to make another season of Going Places with Ernie Dingo because we received such positive feedback from the first short three-part series. Our audience had connected with the program’s unique travel and documentary approach and enjoyed Ernie’s relaxed, and at times, cheeky presenting style.

“The program’s structure is uniform but the ever changing places and people means that each episode is unique, and the essence for me is always the often candid insight from the wonderful people Ernie meets who share with our audiences a window into their world.”

The series follows television personality Ernie Dingo as he travels the length and breadth of Australia, visiting stunning destinations and meeting the traditional owners and locals who live in each region. Over each episode, Ernie uncovers their connections to the land and why they love living where they do.

Over the 14-part series, Ernie visits a host of different destinations, including Cradle Mountain in Tasmania, the Wet Tropics in Far North Queensland, Kangaroo Island in South Australia and Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) in North Territory, and meets a range of interesting characters, including a wildlife conservationist, a foodologist, a cave guide, a visionary and a landscape photographer.

His extensive travels around Australia wrap on a solemn, heartfelt note as Ernie makes a special journey back to his hometown of Mullewa on the Murchison River in Western Australia for the final time with his late brother Buck.

Sunday 2 September at 7.30pm on NITV.
