US chat show host Oprah Winfrey is continuing her tour of Australia.
So far, Oprah has visited some of Australia’s key tourism destinations including Ayres Rock, Sydney Harbour and even held a baby koala during a trip to Hamilton Island Wildlife Park in Whitsundays.
Speaking about her trip to Ayres Rock, Ms Winfrey said: “I think the word awesome applies… it strikes awe in your soul when you see it.”
She added that her visit to the region enabled her to pay her respects to the Aboriginal people and their culture.
A total of 300 Oprah fans from the US took a special flight to Australia to be in the audience of the special show and are being treated to a eight-day all expenses paid trip.
Tourism Australia believes the chat show host’s visit will play a key role in promoting the attractions of the country across the world.
