It turns out that Oprah Winfrey’s getting a little help from friends in her offer to take her audience to Australia — to the tune of $3 million Australian dollars ($2.8 million in U.S. dollars) from the Australian government, according to the Sydney Morning Herald

Australian Tourism Minister Martin Ferguson said the money would be well spent because "this truly represents an amazing opportunity to showcase Australia, the warmth and hospitality of our people and the depth and breadth of everything our country has to offer visitors from around the world."

Tourism Australia will contribute $1.5 million Australian, while New South Wales, the state which includes the city of Sydney, will pitch in between $1 million to $2 million Australian, the story says. "In the NSW government, we dubbed it Project O," says New South Wales Premier Kristina Keneally.
