Aussies around the country are seeing first-hand that summer starts early in the Territory with Channel 9’s Today Show weather host Tim Davies beaming live weather crosses on an NT road trip this week.

Kicking off in the Red Centre, viewers’ are seeing the summer like conditions with blue skies against ochre-coloured sand - giving the perfect backdrop to take a dip in an outback swimming hole.

This morning Tim was live from Uluru with pre-filmed segments including Field of Light – Uluru, an Uluru Segway Tour, fine dining in the open-air restaurant of Tali Wiru and a cultural experience with Maruku Arts.

Tomorrow will see Tim live from Kings Canyon Resort as well as see Tim do the Rim Walk, and try out the Glamping tents at the resort before heading in to Alice Springs on Wednesday with live crosses from the Earth Sanctuary as well as filmed segments at the Alice Springs Desert Park, Alice Springs Brewery, and a Pyndan Camel tour adventure.

The week will culminate in the Top End, where the warm weather will be the star of the show along with Kakadu National Park on Thursday 1 September with Tim catching up with Kakadu Kitchen, as well as experience a Yellow Water cruise and a Rock Art Tour with Yibekka Tours.

The final live-cross will be on Friday 2 September when the Today Show team will reach Darwin. Today’s Lara Vella will be live from Mindil Beach Casino Resort and viewers will also get to see Lara try to bag a barramundi in preparation for Season 8 of Million Dollar Fish that kicks off 1 October 2022, as well as taste test a Laksa, with the Darwin International Laksa Festival set to commence 31 October 2022.
