Popular breakfast show Sunrise to hit Fraser Coast

POPULAR breakfast show Sunrise will be back on the Fraser Coast on Thursday and Friday.

Sunrise will spend Thursday morning on Lady Elliot Island, filming the Great Barrier Reef and features of the eco-resort.

Friday will have Sunrise in Maryborough, showcasing its link to the Mary Poppins novels.

With the Mary Poppins Festival in the Park on Sunday, it is a timely event to promote the unique festival around Australia.

Tas Webber, manager of tourism and events for Fraser Coast Opportunities, said Sunrise visiting Lady Elliot Island and Maryborough was always a great success.

"Sunrise visited Hervey Bay in 2014 which definitely saw some great promotion during the whale-watching season," Mr Webber said.

"This year, it is a great opportunity for Mary- borough to put on a show, which is exactly what we are going to do with Mary Poppins and Admiral Boom to lead the way," he said.

The public is invited to participate in the filming around the Richmond and Wharf St areas.
