For the past four days Channel Nine Australia’s breakfast show Today has been broadcasting live weather crosses from sunny Rarotonga back to over one million Australians.


The show’s visit is the brainchild of Cook Islands Tourism Australia and New Zealand general manager Graeme West, who is aiming to significantly boost future tourist numbers from Australia.
Weather presenter, Natalia Cooper says she has been enjoying every minute of her experience in the Cook Islands, making the most of the lagoons at both Aitutaki and Muri and trying everything from wakeboarding, snorkelling and stand-up paddle yoga, to riding off-road buggies, and even climbing a coconut tree.
Cooper also rubbed shoulders with local celebrities, including our own world champion coconut tree climber George "Johnny" Iona aka “Captain White Chocolate”, national treasure Pa Teuruaa, paddle boarding yoga guru Charlotte Piho, and Aunty Nan.
She will not only take home fantastic memories of her trip but also the warmth of the Cook Islands people she has met. Kia manuia, Natalia.
