Destination Happiness & GMHBA

Category: Mind Health

GMHBA is proud to be partnering with a refreshing new addition to the Channel Nine line up, Destination Happiness - a lifestyle series which investigates the many and varied paths we can explore in order to experience happiness.

In an era where mental health has become a prominent discussion in all realms of life, Destination Happiness brings uplifting, inspiring content to our television screens to help us work on our own wellbeing.

Hosts Angie Hilton and Shura Taft guide us through our search for happiness exploring inspirational personal stories, sampling physical training techniques, mindfulness based activities, travelling to destinations guaranteed to lift our spirits and tasting a few delectable (and nutritious) bites to eat on the way.


This is a passion that TV personality, entertainer and mum Angie holds close to her heart. “After experiencing a stint of severe anxiety and depression in my twenties and being able to overcome that condition, I’ve been on a mission to understand mental health and the methods we can engage in to bring joy back into our lives. Destination Happiness is a product of the endless research I’ve undertaken over the years, that I’d love to share as far and wide as possible.”

Angie and Shura are supported throughout the series by a team of experts including resident Clinical Psychologist, Chris Mackey, GP Dr Leanne Douglas and we even check in on our pets’ mental health with Veterinarian Dr Jane Miller. The Destination Happiness team look at finding joy from a scientific, spiritual and practical point of view. No stone is left unturned.

This is an uplifting and vibrant show which explores the lives of the likes of sporting heroes such as Patrick Dangerfield to everyday people on the street. Watch how, one of our favourite segments, “Random Acts of Happiness” can brighten up a person’s day and understand how the science of our physical health impacts our minds.

In a time where our lives and our world can become quite overwhelming, Destination Happiness is a breath of fresh air. One we can definitely all benefit from.

Destination Happiness airs on the Nine network weekly Saturdays from August 26th 12-12:30pm
