Looking for those regional Romeos

EVER find there's too many fish in the sea that turn out to be bottom-feeders?

Well, five women from Sydney will be out at Rockhampton's Heritage Hotel tomorrow looking for the real deal, or at least some good conversation.

As part of documentary Going the Distance, these women have trekked across the country looking for love in regional areas, because the fish in Sydney are just no good, they say.

Documentary-maker Laticia Gibson said the women, all between the ages of 25 and 41, have not found love in the big city.

Part journey of self-discovery, part search for love, their trip has taken them from Sydney's Rose Bay to the Barossa Valley and the Tamworth Country Music Festival.

There are a single mother, a couple of business owners, a nutritionist and an account manager.

The documentary is raising funds for the Cancer Council.

 

THE SCHEDULE

  • Tomorrow night: The girls will be at the Heritage Hotel from about 8.30pm.
  • Saturday night: They will head to the rodeo at Rockhampton's Great Western Hotel for a barbecue from 6pm.
  • Sunday night: they will visit Emerald at the Irish Village from about 6pm.
