From the time Ben arrived we found him totally professional in all aspects of his role and his presence added an edge to our weekend that was beyond our wildest expectations. Ben made himself available well beyond what was required and charmed our people with his style, good humour and friendly personality. Ben is a drawcard for any event he hosts and his performance left all our people with a weekend they are still talking about eight (8) months later.

He gave us a 110% across a very long day and took our fast shooting pace in his stride with characteristic good humour. His on-camera performance was warm, engaging and cheeky - just what we were after so all in all we are one happy client!
Movie Network Channels

Bush Pig was one of the most successful and popular characters B105 has had on air, and a much loved character by Brisbane listeners simply because he was never afraid to go anywhere or ask any question in his pursuit of a great bit of radio. Ben will be missed at B105.

Ben Dark's Biography

Ben Dark became a successful and respected house hold name when joining Getaway as a presenter. Ben is a dynamic MC and speaker and brings great value and entertainment to all events.


His quick wit, sense of adventure and enormous talent quickly established him as the one to watch on Australian television. So impressive is Ben and his appeal so broad that several Australian network executives describe him as “The best lifestyle presenter on Australian television.

Ben first made his mark on television with the documentary series, Ben Dark’s Australia, which saw him hop in his old holden statesman and intrace the journeys of early explorers. He used their amazing stories of adventure and survival as the basis for his travels. This six part series has been repeated every year since it was first broadcast in 1998 and it has been sold around the world.

Getaway was the gateway to the world for Ben – a glittering prime-time showcase for his talents millions of viewers each week enjoy watching Ben travel Australia and the world. During Ben’s five years on the show they’ve seen him try just about everything from diving off giant sky tower in New Zealand to battling it out at Gladiator school in Rome… going head-to-head with Jerry Springer and coming face-to-face with a raging bull elephant in Africa.

Ben has been constantly in demand to star on other nine Network shows because of his unique style and ability to cross over different genres. Ben has been a guest reporter on The National IQ Test (The highest rating show on Australian television for 2002) A Current Affair and A Current Affair Farmhand Appeal. More recently Ben featured in Celebrity Apprentice in 2012.

Ben Dark is an excellent Master of Ceremonies and after dinner speaker equally happy with a scripted or combination of scripted and ad lib format. He has a genuine warmth and charisma about him, and never fails to capture the audience
