Katrina Hobbs began acting back in 1989 at the tender age of 17, playing the lead in the kid’s drama series “Boy From Andromeda”. During this time she also gained a degree in photography, a hobby she loves to this day.
Since 1989, Katrina has appeared both here and overseas on a variety of shows including Street Legal, Shortland Street, Xena, Hercules, Superfire and Home and Away.
Over the past few years Katrina Hobbs has broadened her horizons to include hosting Lifestyle and Adventure shows, beginning with Foxtel’s Out and About in Australia in 2000.\
Being a water baby to begin with helped with filming during the German adventure travel series 3D Planet. This involved a great deal of scuba diving, in some of the most extraordinary diving sites in the world. Apart from diving Katrina loves skiing, ice-skating, horse-riding and has tried her hand at many an adventurous task, from white water rafting to assailing. While not a daredevil at heart, she loves a challenge, well… most!
This year sees Katrina Hobbs expanding more to include many other interests (of the tamer variety) including cooking and sampling fine wines, fashion and interior design and of course cars, one of her great loves. All of these aspects are incorporated in the TV3 Lifestyle series she currently hosts, Live This.
She also designs for her casual clothing label, Charcoal, and is currently writing a travel journal from last years exploits around the globe for 3D Planet.
