Hamish and Andy’s “Perfect” Holiday

Hamish and Andy’s “Perfect” Holiday

Next year Hamish and Andy return to what they love best, travelling. Audiences fell in love with their gap year seasons and their caravan specials.

Now the boys will embark on another action packed adventure, but this time with a slight twist, in Hamish and Andy’s “Perfect” Holiday.
Hamish and Andy’s “Perfect” Holiday is produced by Radio Karate for Nine.

so True Stories is not returning then?

It has been said that it will be “rested”.

I believe City Homicide is rested, too.

I’m hyped for this. I wonder if it’s similar to 2012’s end-of-year Caravan of Courage specials (mainly the Australian one)…

Filming wrapped up last week according to Hamish and Andy’s Instagram.

We are back everyone! We surprised each other with a new travel adventure every day over the last three weeks and created our ‘Perfect Holiday’. The new show will be out later this year and we can’t wait for you to see it*. *some bits we don’t want our families to see

I like the sound of this. Travel seems to be the new in thing with the success of Travel Guides this year. Now we have The Amazing Race on Ten and this seems to be another thing to add to the fold.

New promo aired tonight during the NRL grand final. Sounds like a lot of fun.
I think it will debut on the same week as The Block finale.

I read somewhere or maybe in this forum that there are only 3 eps

It’s interesting that this promo does not use the voice of veteran Rod Mullinar, who does the voiceover for Hamish and Andy’s radio show and most of their specials.

Maybe he retired. He is 77.

One question: Is it likely that it will air in the late 2019 season?

Yes, likely to screen soon.

Another sneak peek during Nine’s 2020 upfronts this afternoon.


It’s been 5 years since lifelong friends Hamish & Andy finished travelling the world for the award-winning ratings hit, Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year. And now they’re back on the road in North America, venturing everywhere from the depths of the Canadian wilderness to the peaks of the Colorado Rockies, where they’ll meet a variety of unique, interesting and just-plain-crazy Americans along the way.

But on this holiday, Hamish & Andy have added an extra surprise element to their trip. In what can only be seen as an excuse to stitch each other up wherever possible, Hamish has trusted Andy to plan his activities, while Andy has trusted Hamish to do the same. Every day they’ll take it in turns to reveal what extraordinary, idiotic or downright dangerous activity is planned for the other, and together they’ll create their “Perfect” Holiday.
