Channel 7’s Adventure All Stars sneaked its latest contestants into Margaret River this week for five days of secret filming. The reality TV show dubbed “Australia’s only socially-conscious television series” put its season three contestants through a series of challenges at local attractions, including the Margaret River-Busselton Tourism Association’s recently-acquired Eagles Heritage and its Forest Adventures attraction in Busselton. The show’s executive producer and host Troy Gray said taking the crew to Margaret River was a no-brainer. “Margaret River is obviously renowned as a region of fine wine, however many people don’t realise that Margaret River also offers plenty to thrillseekers and those who enjoy adventure,” he said. “This area has always been top of our ‘must-film’ list and now that the borders are open, we can’t wait to further explore the best of WA.” Margaret River-Busselton Tourism Association co-chief executive Sharna Kearney said the film crew visit came at the perfect time. “We have been delighted to host the Adventure All Stars crew and are looking forward to them sharing their experience of our beautiful region with their Australian and New Zealand audiences,” she said. “It is perfectly timed as travel confidence grows and audiences consider their next holiday destination.” The 11 cast members were put through their paces in activities including surfing, quad bike riding and abseiling at Wilyabrup cliffs. Producers Charity TV Global said the program’s goal was to reward people for their fundraising efforts and encourage audience to “give back” to their communities. About $1.25 million was raised for Australian charities during the previous season. All cast members had to raise funds for a nominated philanthropic cause to win their places on the show. Funds raised for the Margaret River episode will support Broken Crayons Still Colour Foundation, Greener Pastures Sanctuary and Heart Support Australia. The series is expected to air early next year on Channel 7 and broadcast to 25 countries, including via Outdoor Channel Asia.
