Seven ends a raft of travel shows around the country, including Sydney Weekender at 25 yrs.

Seven has axed a raft of brand-produced travel shows around the country: Sydney Weekender, SA Weekender, The Great Weekend, Queensland Weekender, The Great Day Out and Creek to Coast.

The longest running is Sydney Weekender hosted by Mike Whitney at some 25 years.

Queensland Weekender and The Great Day Out also have 19 seasons and Creek to Coast ends at 10 seasons.

Seven Chief Executive Officer, James Warburton, said: “The programs that are not continuing have all made a valuable contribution to Seven, particularly Sydney Weekender which has been a Sydney weekend institution for 25 years.

“However, we will continue to make decisions that support our content led growth strategy and focus resources where they will make the most impact.”

Completed episodes will continue on air through early 2020 but no new episodes are planned.

The axing follows Seven ending Sunday Night and Today Tonight in Adelaide and Perth.
