THE Manning Valley will be featured on Sydney Weekender this Saturday for their Legendary Pacific Coast series. The 13 part series sees the crew travel from Sydney to Brisbane and stop at tourist attractions along the way.
The TV crew were in Wingham and Tinonee in June to film at Bent on Foods and Tinonee Cottages and locals are getting ready to celebrate. “We’re having drinks and snacks and the TV will be on,” said Donna Carrier of Bent on Foods who will keep the doors open for anybody who wishes to join them from 5pm.
Presenter Mel Symons and her small TV crew caused quite a buzz when they breezed into town to film the segments. First they visited Bent on Foods and Bent on Life and then nipped over to Donna’s cookery school to film Mel learning to cook Vietnamese food. After they had finished they took the scenic route through Mondrook to Tinonee to film the cute Tinonee Cottages.
Full of vintage charm these two cottages are available for guest hire and a plug on national television certainly made owner Tanya Nielson very happy. Tanya is a regular on Facebook and it was on the social media site that she first interacted with the Legendary Pacific Coast page. She was blown away when she was later contacted and asked to be part of the filming for Sydney Weekender.
Sydney Weekender is on Saturday at 5.30pm on Channel 7 Prime.
