Nova’s Kate, Tim & Joel drive show has been dreaming of travelling ever since the opening of the Trans-Tasman bubble hit the news, and now the trio is set to pack their bags for their first overseas trip as a team.
From 22 May, Kate, Tim & Joel will be partnering with Tourism New Zealand for the first time to explore this very special destination – it’s time to stop dreaming about New Zealand and go!
It’s Joe Creasey’s first time broadcasting the show from overseas, while seasoned pros Kate Ritchie and Tim Blackwell have taken the drive show to UK for the royal wedding in 2018 and Las Vegas in 2016, so they are sure to have heaps of ‘helpful’ tips for the newbie.
Blackwell said, “we’ve been dreaming about travelling for a while and we are not dreaming anymore. We love New Zealand – whale watching in Kaikoura, rafting in Hamilton, Waiheke Island – one of the most beautiful places on earth and skydiving in Taupo.”
Ritchie said, “it’s going to be awesome but I’m not skydiving, are we skydiving?”
Creasey said, “yes, that’s how we’re arriving.”
Kate, Tim & Joel will hop on a flight over the Tasman Sea and wake up in pure bliss, surrounded by nature and adventure.
What do they have planned during their getaway? Winery tours on Waiheke Island, a scenic flight to Auckland’s Sky Tower – they’ll discover some of the incredible experiences New Zealand has to offer and meet the locals along the way.
After their days of sightseeing and capturing content on Kate, Tim & Joel’s socials, the team will jump into the studio to broadcast live on Monday 24 and Tuesday 25 May and encourage listeners to stop dreaming and go themselves!
Andrew Waddel, General Manager of Tourism New Zealand – Australia said, “We’re so excited to welcome Kate, Tim & Joel over and share the wonders of Aotearoa New Zealand with our neighbours once again.
“From alpine scenery in Wanaka to the award-winning wineries of Hawke’s Bay, and buzzing streets of Wellington – there’s loads to see and do.”
Listeners can also have their own New Zealand experience with Kate, Tim & Joel giving away a trips to Wellington, Hamilton & Waikato, Christchurch, Kaikoura and Nelson before they head off.
