Postcards: July 7

Victorian travel show Postcards catches up with TV presenter Nicky Buckley (Sale of the Century, Perfect Match) & husband Murray Bingham (previously a Sale model) at home in Torquay.

While the show screens on Nine in Melbourne there are national playouts on 9Life.

Brodie Harper hooks up with television presenter and model husband and wife, Nicky Buckley and Murray Bingham, as they take her on a tour of the key spots in picturesque Torquay. Meeting at Southside Beach, their favourite, Murray leads off as they head to the Yummy Tummy Café to sip a coffee and try the delicious fare. Then Nicky takes charge, leading them to her coffee spot of choice, Swell in Jan Juc, where Brodie gets all the goss on Nicky and Murray’s return to TV on Nine’s Getaway.

Girls just wanna have sun, so Lauren Phillips makes waves at seaside Mount Martha to see what’s hot in the charming village. First, a luxurious coastal retreat that is up for grabs in this year’s Prize Home Draw for yourtown. The two-storey, four-bedroom home is a major fundraiser for yourtown, which works with young people to find jobs and provide services like the Kids helpline. Next it’s a short drive to the Pomme boutique for some window shopping, before Lauren ends the day over a pizza at Volpino.

Rebecca Judd is heading into the CBD for a mini “staycation”. Dropping her bags at The Langham Melbourne, she visits award-winning restaurant Melba, currently celebrating the state’s produce with 70 per cent of their buffet coming from Victoria, before taking a stroll to the National Gallery of Victoria to explore the incredible Terracotta Warriors and Cai Guo-Qiang exhibition. Speaking of ancient, Bec heads back to the Langham to experience their latest dino-mite offering, a Jurassic World-inspired high tea.

And we catch Shane Delia hanging out with fellow chef and former employee Coskun Uysal at Coskun’s newly refurbished restaurant, Tulum in Balaclava. But first coffee, so they pop into Lezzet, an Elwood restaurant, for a traditional Turkish coffee, and then the St Kilda Community Gardens Club. From there they trot around the corner and into the Tulum kitchen, where Coskun whips up a spectacular Middle Eastern feast for his old boss.

Postcards encores nationally on 9Life on Mondays at 12.00pm, Wednesdays at 1.00pm and Saturdays at 11.30am.

Sunday at 5.30pm on Nine (Melb).
