Ms Bartholomew visited Mount Gnomon Farm at Penguin yesterday, broadcasting live back to Brekky Central.

The popular breakfast television show presenter has been travelling around Tasmania over the past week showcasing what our state has to offer.

Miss Bartholomew said she loved coming to Tasmania with Sunrise, but wanted to get outside the metropolitan areas.

“When we decided to come to Tasmania, we wanted to go to Hobart, but we also wanted to show other areas of the state,” she said.

She said starting the tour of Australia in Tasmania was the perfect way.

“I think Tassie has been so welcoming and has been the best start to our trip that we could have imagined,” she said.

“A bloke came up to me during the week and told me that we’re giving away all of the state’s secrets.

“But I think the secret of Tasmania was let out a while ago, and so it should be.”

Along with providing home viewers with travel ideas, her goal was to make sure she covered activities for the show’s entire audience, whether that be luxurious or more budget-friendly holidaying, and everything in between.

Some would say Miss Bartholomew had the best job in the world, but for her, she said the research was what she enjoyed the most.

“I’ve been very lucky with this job,” she said.

“Someone pays for me to travel the country and I get paid to do it.

“For me though, I’m able to use my journalist skills for all the research that is required to find interesting places to visit. That’s probably the best aspect.”

Along with researching her own filming locations, Miss Bartholomew said suggestions also came from a variety of sources.

“We get suggestions to go and visit places from our viewers, word of mouth and from tourism experts,” she said.

Miss Bartholomew said she also enjoyed getting out and about and meeting the people who watched Sunrise.

“I met a lady this morning who met Grant Denyer when he was last here and now she’s met us,” she said.

“In between meeting Grant and us, she said she’s recovered from cancer and was basically in tears telling me this.”

After her broadcast at Mount Gnomon Farm, Miss Bartholomew said she would stay on the Coast for the remainder of the day before getting on the Spirit of Tasmania.

She will today present the weather aboard the Spirit of Tasmania as it sails into Melbourne.
