4WD convoy heads to Dargo for TV filming
Central Gippsland is widely renowned as Victoria’s premier 4WD region, and as such has been selected by the 7 Network to feature on an episode of 'Life Off Road', produced by the Team behind 4wd TV – to be filmed this weekend.
4wd TV plan to bring a convoy of 4WD vehicles into Gippsland with a focus on spending locally and boosting the economy. The filming will centre around the community of Dargo and the many 4WD trails surrounding the town. With the assistance of Destination Gippsland and Wellington Shire Council the 4wd TV crew will shoot two episodes this month for national broadcast on 7Mate this coming May.
There will also be a number of special guests including Simon Christie, Will Connolly and Rick O’Brien (who is also filming in the area for a Ch10 off road program).
The episodes will highlight the devastation caused to rural Australia by drought, fires, floods and COVID, and promote travel to the region as one of the best ways to help communities get back on their feet.
