One of Australia’s longest running travel shows returns to Saturday afternoons on Ch9 – welcome back Getaway! The gang’s all back and travelling all over the world and all over Australia working to find the best spot for your next break (I wish!). Relax, sit back and dream. From the press release:

Getaway, Australia’s longest running lifestyle program, is back, celebrating its 21st season in 2012 and exploring the best destinations at home and abroad. In the first program of the year at 5.30pm this Saturday on Channel Nine, Catriona Rowntree, Dermott Brereton, Kelly Landry, Jules Lund, Jason Dundas and special guest Sophie Monk will share great holiday ideas and weekend getaways.

Catriona, Jason and Kelly go in search of romantic weekend escapes. Jason travels an hour and a half from Sydney, finding a perfect getaway for couples in the Blue Mountains, and Catriona discovers an adults-only retreat offering beachfront luxury on Hamilton Island. Kelly travels down the Sunshine Coast waterways on a gondola, finding a piece of Venice right here in Australia which offers a unique romantic experience for couples.

Special guest Sophie Monk heads to Hawaii to get up close with monk seals at Sea Life Park. This isn’t your average animal park – the marine refuge is designed with reefs, lagoons and pools, plus attractions and activities for the whole family. Dermott also heads overseas to uncover the shopping secrets of Singapore. Back home, Jules gets behind the steering wheel and tests out the Indian Ocean coast drive linking Perth’s northern suburbs with coastal towns and tourist destinations.

Grab your passport, pack your suitcase and get ready to travel when Getaway returns to Nine on Saturday, February 18, at 5.30pm.
