Ellen DeGeneres Coming to Australia Video Announcement

Ellen DeGeneres Is Coming to Australia! Watch Her Exciting Announcement

It's the announcement Australian Ellen DeGeneres fans have been waiting to hear for what seems like forever: Ellen is coming to Australia! The comedian made the announcement on her show with the help of special guest Nicole Kidman during the taping of her show on Thursday. Swisse Vitamins is partnering with Ellen for 12 months as they launch in the US — Nicole is the brand's global ambassador — and Ellen said, "I love [Swisse] because they're an Australian company and they wanna help me get to Australia. So I am actually for the first time in my life going to Australia in March . . . I'm going in March and I'm going to shoot a bunch of stuff in Melbourne and Sydney — we're gonna do tape pieces and meet the fans and hang out."

After Nicole gave Ellen some suggestions on where to go and what to see, including the beautiful beaches and perhaps a dip in a "magical" watering hole in Kununurra, and tried to imitate a kookaburra, Ellen announced that she was going to give one audience member the chance to also visit Australia. Then she mentioned that her birthday fell on Australia Day (Jan. 26) and said, "For my birthday I like to give gifts. Everybody knows that. So I've decided instead that everyone here is going to Australia." The audience went crazy but before you think Ellen is coming to Australia Oprah Winfrey-style, it seems her visit Down Under will be more low-key, without grand shows staged at iconic venues like the Opera House.

Watch Ellen's announcement above and get excited for her March arrival!
