Glen Iris was very lucky to receive a visit from the Sunrise weather crew during lamb shearing in October 2015. The Sunrise Team were performing their Lap of the Map Tour, and were looking for a traditional Australian shearing shed to film their live weather crosses. We were given only two days notice prior to filming as they encountered “wet sheep” at their first planned location!
The hard working Sunrise Team were great to work with. They were up, ready and looking good much earlier than the farmers and shearing team! They were very respectful of our profession and workplace, and also of agricultures importance to the Australian landscape and economy. Their efforts to present the other side of Australia to our metropolitan neighbours was highly commendable.
