Airdate: Country House Hunters Australia

New property series Country House Hunters Australia, hosted by Catriona Rowntree, begins this Friday on Nine.

Produced by Eye Candy Group, the series helps a couple relocate from the city to an Australian region location, showing them 3 houses that suit their specific brief with one chosen at the end of the show.

Rowntree tells TV Tonight, “Amazingly, we’ve been able to film during lockdown, which is extraordinary. But other than that, I’m leading with my heart and just getting out there and supporting our regional areas.”

Episode 1 features “Warrnambool.”

After living in Portland for the past few years, Brian & Gina are looking to relocate to Warrnambool on Victoria East Coast, where Brian has started a new job.

7:30pm Friday on Nine.


  1. It looks a bit like Escape to the Country or Escape from the City. These houses and properties look opulent and there is a sense of luxury from the preview, which is a small point of difference with the other programs. Luxury was also one of the appeals of Grand Designs. This has potential to do well, I think.

    • I couldn’t agree with you more my friend as it’s now finally great to see something worth watching at a reasonable hour. If it screams Escape to the Country, so be it as it’s nice to see great Australian properties and Catriona is an absolutely fantastic Host for this what I’m sure will be a success. Looking forward to next Friday Catriona, already ….
