8:30pm – Thursday, January 3 on TV 3
The boys are back! Comic duo Hamish Blake and Andy Lee are taking their Caravan Of Courage series back on the road in a new two-part travel special, Hamish & Andy Caravan Of Courage: Australia vs. New Zealand – their first stop New Zealand. Hamish & Andy Caravan Of Courage: Australia vs. New Zealand, premieres on Thursday, January 3 rd at 8:30pm on 3.
Hamish and Andy love nothing more than a good old fashioned adventure. This passion has seen them spend the last several years visiting the most far-flung corners of the globe. But one region of the world has in recent times escaped their unskilled eye – until now.
Over the next two weeks, Hamish and Andy will rev up the old caravan and courageously drive the length of New Zealand and the breadth of Australia in an attempt to compare and contrast the people and the places that make our region so unique. And then in a very unscientific manner they will pick a winner.
“We can already tell it’ll be a close contest,” says Hamish. “Hopefully not too close though. I’m not quite sure what we’ll do if it goes into extra time.”
As self-appointed judges, Hamish and Andy will see the best that Australia and New Zealand have to offer. Important cultural experiences like a Captain Cook Re-enactment group, a Bee Beard, the World’s Steepest Street, a Nude Rugby Club, some Sheep Racing and a very troublesome homemade Hovercraft.
“Between the raw beauty of the New Zealand countryside, the untouched grandness of the Australian desert and the unthinkable depths of Hamish’s stomach, this is one of the most memorable trips we’ve been on yet,” adds Andy.
They will leave no stone unturned, no person unmet, and no stupid challenge left unattempted on this 10,000km Caravan of Courage that will settle the trans-Tasman rivalry once and for all. Make sure not to miss the boys exploring New Zealand in this week’s Hamish & Andy Caravan Of Courage: Australia vs. New Zealand, screening on Thursday, January 3 rd at 8:30pm on 3.
