She's baaaaaack!

Kate Gosselin's Kate Plus 8 returns to the airwaves with all-new episodes beginning April 4, TLC announced Tuesday.

In the hour-long season premiere, the once-ubiquitous, now-single reality mom, 35, takes her 8 kids on their most far-flung journey ever: Australia.

After their longest plane ride yet, the famous family (minus dad Jon Gosselin, of course) ring in the New Year in Sydney.

Other highlights of their down-under adventures: Plenty of sun and surf by the beach; quality time with Australian aboriginals; Kate's freezing-cold ocean encounter with sharks...and, after Gosselin's notorious meltdown outside a tent in Alaska, another camping trip.

Tell Us: Will you tune in to this season of Kate Plus 8?
