Sunny support for the Prom

Breakfast with Today: Weatherman for the Today Show, Steve Jacobson (centre), tries out some local produce, kindly prepared by Emily Darmanin and Marty Thomas from Moo's at Meeniyan.

ALL OF Wilsons Promontory’s glory was on display for the nation this morning when the Today Show broadcast live from Tidal River.

Weatherman Steve Jacobs camped the night, strolled along the beach, had a go at ocean canoeing and fossicked with Parks Victoria rangers throughout the morning, while Mt Dandenong Primary School students also starred on the screen as they took part in a surfing lesson.

Although taking to the beach like a natural, Steve proved he was slightly better suited to dry land when he dropped his microphone in the water whilst canoeing, momentarily muting the forecast.

For the final cross of the morning, Steve met with Marty Thomas from Moo’s at Meeniyan who was cooking up a storm, showcasing a range of local produce.

Everyone was treated to a gourmet BBQ of Garden Farm eggs, Terramirra Park venison sausage and Hope Farm sourdough, showing off what South Gippsland has to offer.

Plenty of curious campers and dedicated locals braved the early morning alarm to come down and watch, while Belle and Levi Cocksedge and Zack Stephenson from Yanakie ducked down before school with a sign for their friends at Foster Primary, and were thrilled to end up on national television.

This is the second time the Today Show has broadcast live from South Gippsland location, with the Toora Tourist Park also featuring late last year.
