This epic series is a journey through time and space to explore Australasia’s natural wonders. It is a
detective story, delving into Australasia’s hidden secrets to explain why its wildlife and wilderness are
so special. As the driest inhabited continent on Earth, Australia is a world apart – a place where
successive invasions of people have made the greatest impact on its wildlife and wilderness areas.
Its wildlife is an astonishing mix of the surprising, the strange and the deadly. From the tropical jungle
to the vast shallow coral reefs, from burning deserts to snowy mountains, Australasia is a land of
outstanding splendour with a great variety of moods and landscapes.
