Sunrise weather presenter in Hervey Bay on Wednesday morning
UPDATE: Sunrise weather presenter Edwina Batholomew is broadcasting from Pelican Bank, a sandbar between Hervey Bay and Fraser Island, on Wednesday morning.
She was on the sandbar just after 7am and said after Australia Day in January, Pelican Bank was covered in debris and the water was murky.
"Now - not a sign of that at all," Edwina said.
"This is the big tourist season, aside from summer, this is the second big tourist season for Hervey Bay with the whale watching and I cannot recommend it enough."
"It is truly a special slice of Australia."
The Sunrise crew are scheduled to go whale watching on Thursday.
EARLIER: Channel Seven Sunrise weather presenter Edwina Bartholomew is heading to Pelican Bank, a sandbar between Hervey Bay and Fraser Island, on Wednesday morning.
"There's not much there at all, in fact there's nothing," she told Sunrise viewers just after 6am.
"We'll be playing a bit of cricket, some of the locals are going to sail over on their boats, perhaps a bit of kayaking but that's all.
"A little holiday in the middle of your working week."
The latest visits follow Sunrise weather presenters broadcasting from the area in Feburary and the Today show in May this year.
In the weather bulletin after the 6.30am news, she told viewers she had been walking on the beach at sunset on Tuesday and had seen a dugong about 15m from the shore.
Broadcasting from a boat on the way to Pelican Bank, she spoke to the boat driver 'Jacko', saying presenter David Koch had asked if there were pelicans there.
"Yes, Kochie would ask a question like that," he said, sending the team at the studio in gales of laughter.
Kochie replied: "sledge, I love it, give him a clip around the ears."
When pointing out Big Woody Island, 'Jacko' also joked that "with the southerly wind blowing this cold it's probably more appropriate to call it Little Woody Island".
"It's going to be a fun morning," Edwina said.
