BANALASTA was basking in the glare of television cameras yesterday as the team from Sydney Weekender dropped in for a visit.
The crew spent the day at the lavender and eucalyptus farm near Bendemeer to film for an episode of the show that’s expected to air in the next two to five weeks.
It’s not the first time the farm has featured on Sydney Weekender, with host Mike Whitney calling in to sample its delights 10 years ago.
Owner Kim Blickling said Whitney and the crew filmed the harvesting of the eucalyptus and the subsequent distillation process, as well as a segment on the Banalasta skincare line.
The Blickling Estate wines, which have been given the highest rating by some of the nation’s top wine writers, were also featured.
