Returning: Postcards

Nine's Victorian travel series Postcards returns for its 21st season.

Nine’s Victorian travel series Postcards returns for its 21st season this Sunday, with the whole team exploring the great attractions of the Mornington Peninsula.

From Episode 2, Postcards will also be doing a series of bushfire-affected area stories and specials.

The team start the 21st year of Postcards in style, discussing their holidays at the recently opened five-star RACV Cape Schanck Resort on the Mornington Peninsula.

Rebecca Judd takes a tour of the resort. Whilst admiring its spectacular design, Dean Newell, the manager, talks her through the fabulous features of Cape Schanck, which include spa treatments and plenty of family-friendly activities. Bec also catches up with Josh Pelham, the executive chef, to sample the delicious food while enjoying the view of the golf course, and ends her visit with a herbal tea in the relaxation room.

Brodie Harper travels to three different locations for a variety of fun. First she chats to the owners of the family-run boutique business Red Hill Cheese before venturing to Mock Red Hill, an apple orchard and farmgate, and meeting co-owner Mardi Mock. Brodie’s last stop is a Postcards favourite, Green Olive at Red Hill, one of the finest farms/wineries on the Mornington Peninsula, where she learns from Dawn Allen, the head flower forager from Peninsula Wildflower, how to make a stunning flower posy.

Livinia Nixon takes to the hills to discover the hidden gems of Mornington. She visits Red Hill’s main pocket of shops to browse through the beautiful boutiques and catches up with Emma Phillips, one of the owners from Amelie & Frank’s designer boutique. At the Red Hill House boutique she admires their unique handmade products, and winds up at the picturesque Mantons Creek Estate with food and wine.

Finally, Shane Delia discovers a great new place to explore: the state-of-the-art Boneo Park Equestrian Centre. Fiona Selby, the managing director, tells him about the 340-hectare property which has more than 10 kilometres of trails, a 1.5 kilometre lake circuit, and is home to native wildlife. Shane also enjoys a bite to eat at the newly opened Arilla restaurant as he takes in the stunning views.

5:30pm Sunday on Nine Melbourne.

  1. Maybe it could be broadcast on a multichannel for interstate viewers too. Marty Sheargold once made a reference to Postcards in one of his answers on Have You Been Paying Attention?, but it wouldn’t have made any sense to anyone outside of Victoria that was not aware of Postcards.
