In Australia's Northern Territory, gorgeous sandy beaches, delicious food, and iconic animals come together to give visitors the quintessential Australian experience. Samantha receives a traditional Aboriginal welcome to the "top end" of Australia in an oceanfront ceremony that includes a song of friendship, a didgeridoo performance, and native dance. "Auntie Cindy" teaches her how to make damper bread in the campfire and proudly shares the fact that Aboriginal Australians are the oldest continuous civilization on earth. Later, Sam visits a gallery dedicated to Aboriginal art and learns traditional weaving techniques from the artists there. She ends her day with a festive trip to the Mindil Beach Sunset Market where she samples exotic food, enjoys live music, cracks a whip, and applauds with the locals as the sun dips into Darwin Bay. Next, it's off to the bush for Samantha as she encounters wallabies, takes an airboat ride into big crocodile territory, and ends the day indulging in the 5-star accommodations of the Finniss River Lodge. The adventure continues in Litchfield National Park where she marvels at termite mounds more than 20-feet tall and takes a bush walk through the rainforest to discover fruit bats, edible ants, and a magnificent waterfall-fed swimming spot that is too pretty to miss. Back in Darwin, Samantha tours the Cenotaph War Memorial and relates the story of Darwin's strategic importance as the connection point for a telegraph line that connected Australia to the rest of the world, as well as the Japanese attack on Darwin Harbor during World War II.

About Samantha Brown's Places to Love:

For more than 17 years, TV host Samantha Brown has been exploring all four corners of the world, visiting more than 260 cities in 62 countries, sharing her adventures and introducing new cultures to viewers.

Now, the two-time Emmy Award-winner embarks on her next journey with her new travel series SAMANTHA BROWN'S PLACES TO LOVE.

Unlike a traditional travelogue show with a formulaic itinerary, PLACES TO LOVE delivers decidedly refreshing and enriching travel experiences by taking viewers on a discovery of the emotional heart of travel and highlighting the people who are changing, challenging and strengthening a destination.

From Brooklyn, New York and Monterey, California to Shanghai, China and Donegal in Ireland, Samantha seeks out the little-known spots and haunts where innovators and disrupters are creating a brand new travel experience.

Whether it's through food and drink, art and design, culture or adventure, at the end of each episode, viewers will have a well-curated list of new experiences that focus on not just how to visit a destination, but how to fully immerse in it.

The 13-part series encourages viewers to experience the passion of people and the soul of a place in a way that only traveling can do.

Samantha's career as a television travel host happened by accident.

A producer spotted her work in a commercial and recommended her to the Travel Channel in 1999 to audition for a new show called Great Vacation Homes.

A decade of various series followed, including Great Hotels, Passport to Europe, Passport to Latin America, Samantha Brown's Asia, The Trip, 50/50, and many others.

Samantha's fun-loving style has made her a beloved and engaging television personality whose approach is less expert and more a person you would want to travel with.
