Australia is apparently picking up some of the tab for the big surprise trip Oprah gave her audience.

During the kick-off show of her final season, which aired Monday, Oprah told her in-studio audience that she was taking them on a ten-day trip to Australia.

A spokesperson for Harpo productions says the company is partnering with Tourism Australia.

There are published reports in Australia that the country is picking up part of the tab.

Audience members will arrive in Sydney on December 7th for the trip.
