Rhonda Red Hot And Ready To Support Aussie Made Goods
One of Australia's leading ladies for decades and much-loved performers, Rhonda Burchmore is truly iconic.
She was a fan-favourite this year on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and has just started producing her own YouTube series called Rhonda's Rewind, which looks back at her incredible show business career. Rhonda is a proud supporter of the Australian show business industry and Rhonda’s Rewind is also a tribute to that.
"I'm having a very nostalgic time looking back over my career of 40 years in show business," she says.
"It's wonderful looking back at the old recordings of variety shows such as The Mike Walsh Show and Hey Hey It's Saturday, along with revisiting so many theatrical highlights along the way, like Hot Shoe Shuffle and Mamma Mia to name a few."
Just as Rhonda has supported and been the star of so many Australian musical and theatre productions over the years, she is also a supporter of our homegrown brands.
We asked Rhonda to share with us some of her favourite Aussie-made products.
DARRELL LEA FRESH BATCH 37 LIQUORICE
I have eaten this liquorice ever since I was a kid. It has the best texture and aniseed flavour and reminds me of my childhood when my Nan and Poppy used to give us a piece as a treat when we would visit.
KALKI MOON GIN
A wonderful smooth tasting gin distilled and brewed in Bundaberg, Queensland. It is a family run business and the brewery is an incredible place to visit as well where you can sample a lot of their different gins and watch how they are distilled.
STEEL BLUE BOOTS
These are the boots that I wore 24/7 in the jungle on I'm A Celebrity earlier this year and would have to be without a doubt the most functional footwear I have ever worn in my life.
JARVIS WALKER FISHING ROD
My favourite hobby to do to get away from the hustle of city life is to fish. It is my favourite recreation. I have always loved and trusted Jarvis Walker fishing rods to help guarantee I catch my target fish.
POWERFEED PLANT FOOD
My favourite dynamic fertiliser I use to promote the growth of healthy plants and flowers in my garden. I can immediately see the results after a day of using this incredible product.
