CAPE York product Penny Johnson will be gracing TV screens in 25 countries, with her face beamed into almost 100 million homes as a star of charity television travel series Adventure All Stars.
Screened in Australia on Channel 7 and across the world in 25 countries, the show combines entertainment with philanthropy, and has raised more than $9 million for Aussie charities.
Ms Johnson, a former Cooktown resident now living in Malanda. said stars on the show raised funds for their nominated charity prior to filming, then were taken to a secret location for six days of fun and filming.
“Over the next 10 months I’ll be fundraising for Australian Horizons Foundation. then I’ll be whisked off to an undisclosed location with a camera crew to do amazing things, and that will form my episode of the show,” she said.
“The episodes are about real people like me highlighting these amazing destinations, and the charities we are fundraising for.”
Ms Johnson is no stranger to travel, having run Cooktown-based Cape York tour business Bart’s Bush Adventures with husband Bart for many years.
