Rocky and Mayur show offers unconventional take on Australia, says Living Foodz' Amit Nair

MUMBAI: Get ready for an Aussie adventure this September, as India’s favourite foodie duo Rocky Singh and Mayur Sharma take you on a trip Down Under with their latest show ‘Rocky and Mayur’s Offbeat Australia’, which will air on Living Foodz, starting 22 September.

Known for their quirky, tongue-in-cheek humour, Rocky and Mayur’s ‘bromance’ has become legendary. The globetrotting pair set out to Australia for some much-needed R&R. They will be seen travelling across the Northern Territory, South Australia, New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia on the show.

“This is a very different show for us, since it gives the viewers a peek in to our lives while we are on a vacation! We had an exciting Aussie experience right from taking-on new adventures, to enjoying the amazing cuisine and breathtaking locales. During our vacation, we have also learnt ‘how to be an Aussie’ with the endearing and friendly locals of the country! We look forward to the launch of the show and sharing our journey with the viewers,” say Rocky and Mayur.

Australia offers the perfect backdrop for adventure sports and the duo will be seen quad biking around Kings Canyon, sandboarding in South Australia’s Little Sahara, zip lining at Otway Fly Treetop Adventures in Victoria, enjoying a Hot Air Balloon ride in Alice Springs and skydiving at Sunshine Coast.

Rocky and Mayur picked up some quirky lingo from the locals and even got some interesting tips on 'How to be an Aussie'! The duo also engaged in enriching conversations with the locals and learnt that they were deeply passionate about their fresh produce.

“Over the past years, Living Foodz has redefined the way people learn about food, travel and culture through our shows. We constantly endeavour to offer differentiated content in innovative formats and our latest offering, ‘Rocky and Mayur’s Offbeat Australia’ is a prime example of this. The show offers an unconventional take on Australia and is ideal for Indian travelers, who are constantly scouring for unique experiences. It’s a unique initiative in the overall sector of food, travel and lifestyle. What makes it even more unique is the camaraderie between Rocky and Mayur. Their banter and synergy truly brings their experiences to life and they get along like a house on fire!,” said Living Foodz business head Amit Nair.

Home to a myriad cultures, Australia offers a diverse culinary experience. Rocky and Mayur enjoyed a multicultural culinary experience and discovered some great food and wine destinations such as Lune Croissanterie in Melbourne, The Jack Rabbit Vineyard in Victoria and a quaint wine lounge in South Australia, built in an old church that offered some great pizza and wine. The duo enjoyed a view of the ‘lovely land of Oz’ from the sky, over the land and in the ocean while gorging on scrumptious food and wine throughout their journey.

Tourism Australia country manager - India and Gulf Nishant Kashikar said, “The duo is incredibly popular and have an instant connect with the Indian audience for their camaraderie and banter. The series takes the audiences through scenic road trips, spectacular nature, adventure, outback, and showcases great food and wine experiences of Australia."
