On Sunday, the online broadcast will commence with a 6am sunrise yoga session at Elements of Byron Bay.

Then at 10am, the feature will be theme around The Great Aussie Brunch, featuring Three Blue Ducks, live from Sydney, Byron Bay and Melbourne.

The project is important as more than 20,000 workers in Northern NSW are expected to be impacted by the coronavirus outbreak, as the tourism industry takes a massive hit.

The weekend will also feature croc encounters with Matt Wright and dance parties with The Wiggles, a penguin parade from Phillip Island and an underwater virtual tour of the Great Barrier Reef, an Uluru sunset and more.
