Well worth every dollar.
Oprah will highlight the destinations this Magnificent country has to offer and cashed-up americans might just want to spend it on what Oprah tells them to.
They are,after all,Americans.

Agree- with our dollar so high, tourism is lagging. More aussies are travelling os as well. This could be as valuable as the shrimp on the barbie ads.

Stick that! I'll clean all the toilets myself, then move to the US and start my own cleaning/home maintenence contractor business. As an equal oportunity employer, I'll hire illegal mexicans only and pay them cash. They'll probably end up mowing your lawn and your wife will pay them with something else.

It will probably be worth the money in tourist promotion for Australia. Our tourism industry is really struggling at the moment

paris hilton is totally useless, whereas oprah is one of the most powerful and influential women in the world.
