Presenters Mel Symons

Mel Symons

This year, Mel celebrates twenty years on Australian television.

With a bunch of national credits including Seven’s Saturday Disney and pioneer lifestyle TV show – Ground Force, as well as over a decade of Sydney Weekender stories under her belt, Mel is one of the show’s mainstays. She has travelled throughout NSW for us discovering amazing locations, local gems and meeting the real characters that make our country so special.

A highly accomplished compere, Mel has done everything from emceeing shows for our troops in Afghanistan and touring with UK style duo Trinny & Susannah to being the on-field emcee for the Wallabies and hosting Fashions on the Field for the Australian Jockey Club. She does high profile events for Westfield and David Jones along with a Sydney Weekender favourite, the NSW Tourism awards with Mike.

When she steals a moment away from the spotlight Mel jumps behind the camera to produce other lifestyle programs for Network Seven and hosts breakfast radio for the Today network.
