Uluru Gets Australian Celeb to Promote 'Seven Wonders' Campaign

Australian broadcaster Steve Liebmann has become the official ambassador for Uluru in the New Seven Wonders (styled New7Wonders) of Nature global campaign.

With less than five months to go until voting finishes in the final round of the New7Wonders of Nature campaign, Tourism Australia will work with Steve Liebmann to generate votes for Uluru before the final announcement on November 11.

Best known for co-hosting the Today news and current affairs show on the Nine Network, Liebmann has worked as a television and radio presenter for more than 20 years. During that time he has traveled extensively around the globe and cites Uluru in central Australia as his favorite place in the world. More recently Steve Liebmann joined the Friends of Australia initiative, Tourism Australia’s advocacy program to promote Australian tourism experiences to the world.

Steve Liebmann explains why Uluru is so close to his heart: “It is unique, spectacular and overwhelming. There is not a photograph or video clip that truly captures the beauty of this world-famous, natural icon,” he said. “Uluru is never the same twice, with its revolving colors it constantly takes on a different significance, a different meaning. I’ve returned four times over the years and each time offers an entirely new experience.
