Ginette McDonald's salt of the earth creation Lynn of Tawa toured New Zealand and Australia in this ten part travel show. In this episode, Lynn explores the heavy hitters of Otago culture  Scottish heritage, bad student art, frigid cold and niche sports  all with the naughty innuendo and blunt comments audiences love her for. Lynn of Tawa still reigns as McDonald's most famous role, and it's easy to see why  her effortless improvisation and charm are showcased in the character, and this warped take on a travel show is the ideal format for her to thrive.  

The steepest street in the world — it's sort of like a metaphor for Otago... challenging, rugged, dramatic... and I can't imagine why anyone would want to live here.
– Lynn of Tawa (Ginette McDonald)
