Whilst Caravan Park sitting at Tooraweenah, NSW, I had to pleasure of meeting the Sunrise weather crew. In fact, the crew stayed in Cabins at the park.
There were 5 crew members including James Tobin, the Weatherman.
All great people and they absolutely loved the scones, jam and cream that welcomed them on arrival.
The weather segment was broadcast from Emu Logic, the emu farm just out of Tooraweenah.
The farm is a very interesting placethe has all manner of emu based products for sale.As well as hundreds of live Emu running about.
Almost all of the residents of Toora rose early on the Sunday morning and made their way out to the park.
The local Lions club were c⁷ooking breakfast, there was a mobile coffee van and lots of excitement for all.
Breakfast was great. Bacon and egg sandwiches as well as Emu rissoles.
These were delicious. Who,d of thought Emu could taste so good.
The coffee washed it all down and then the broadcast began.
Some folk lined up to be on TV while others, like myself, stood back and watched the proceedings. JT was in fine form. Geeing everyone up, cracking jokes and even eating a rissole whilst on camera.
In the sheds was an array of local arts and crafts.
The Piliga Pottery had some marvellous works of art. Narrabri Air Museum a great display of WW2 photos and information. A local ceramics person exibited wonderfully colouful mugs , I bought a couple, and of course all the various Emu products.
The TV coverage was good for the area as it brought awareness of the terrible drought conditions that are happening, not just in Toora but statewide.
