It was an Oprah love fest for some 300 Americans who arrived in Australia on Tuesday.

Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey flew the audience members halfway around the world for an eight-day journey in the land down under, as part of her ultimate giveaway.

The itinerary for "Oprah's Ultimate Australian Adventure" includes wine tastings, surfing lessons and a huge welcome party for the big event with two shows at the renamed "Oprah House."

The tribute even includes what's being called the "Great Wall of Oprah."
