The best of Deniliquin will be showcased to a national audience later this month, following a visit from Australian travel television show the Sydney Weekender last week.

The Seven Network program shares the best places to eat, stay and play in destinations throughout New South Wales and will feature Deniliquin in an upcoming segment.

Sydney Weekender reporter Lizzy Lovette started her two-day visit at the iconic Deni Ute Muster site and was treated to a camel ride, a performance by local musician Anna Bowie and a display of whip cracking and circle work.

Ute Muster general manager Vicky Lowry said Mrs Lovette and the camera crew had a ‘‘great time’’ learning about the festival.

‘‘We’re looking forward to the program when it airs — Lizzy was very excited to experience what happens at the Muster,’’ Mrs Lowry said.

The following morning, scenic footage of the Edward River was also recorded.

Edward River Council tourism officer Jane Frazer said the segment will help promote the Ute Muster and Deniliquin as a tourist destination.

‘‘There’s a lot to do in Deni and this show will help spread that message,’’ she said.

‘‘It isn’t just a Muster — there are Easter activities, Deni Fest, Collectors Spring Rally, bike trails, beach to beach walking tracks and more.

‘‘There are lots of different reasons to come here, and we’re excited to share just a few of them with Australia.’’

The segment is expected to air on August 27, from 5.30pm. It is not yet confirmed whether the time will change for Victorian and southern NSW viewers.
