Health Club is an Australian television series which aired from 1957 to 1959, also known as Health and Happiness. A daytime series aired on Melbourne station HSV-7, very little information is available on the series, however it is notable as an early example of an Australian television series aimed at women. A 15-minute series, it was hosted by Beryl Wright and aired weekly on Wednesdays.
For much of its run, it aired as part of a programming block called Home, which also included The Jean Bowring Show. For example, on 13 November 1957 the Home Programme consisted of Cooking (with Jean Bowring), Home Decoration (with Joyce Turner), Beauty (with Bambi Smith), Shopping Guide (with Brenda Marshall) and Health Club, with the programming block running from 2:30PM to 4:00PM, and followed by the station signing-off for 75 minutes.
Under the Health and Happiness title during 1959, the series was preceded on the HSV schedule by My Fair Lady and followed by Drama (which typically consisted of selections of American anthology series Four Star Playhouse).
Bali is a popular tourist destination, which has seen a significant rise in tourists since the 1980s. It is renowned for its highly developed arts, including traditional and modern dance, sculpture, painting, leather, metalworking, and music. The Indonesian International Film Festival is held every year in Bali.
Bali is part of the Coral Triangle, the area with the highest biodiversity of marine species. In this area alone over 500 reef building coral species can be found. For comparison, this is about 7 times as many as in the entire Caribbean. There is a wide range of dive sites with high quality reefs, all with their own specific attractions. Many sites can have strong currents and swell, so diving without a knowledgeable guide is inadvisable. Most recently, Bali was the host of the 2011 ASEAN Summit, 2013 APEC and Miss World 2013.
