Co-host Karl Stefanovic said: “I won’t lie – we have the best time when we’re away on our We Love Australia trips. Every single one of the towns we’ve visited has made us feel so welcome – not to mention that the food and beer are always way better. As are Dickie’s dance moves at the local pubs. I never get sick of Dicky dancing.”
