Australia hits the BBC !!
Australia will once again be hitting TV screens in the UK this month.
Fans of intrepid TV adventurer, Simon Reeve, will be glued to their sets at 9pm on Sunday 19 May for the first in his new series on BBC 2, Australia. Visitors to this epic continent should follow Simon’s example and start their tour Down Under in the magnificent ‘Red Centre’.
Home to some of Australia’s most dramatic scenery, including the awe-inspiring Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kings Canyon and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), the Red Centre of the Northern Territory is the spiritual heart of this amazing, ancient land. Indigenous art and culture entwine with historical natural icons, whilst thrill seekers can indulge in everything from camping under the stars to hot air ballooning, soaking in watering holes to tackling the mighty MacDonnell Ranges.
Australia kick starts with Simon examining the fragile desert ecosystem and the impact of camels on the Outback, joining an Aussie rancher to embark on a high octane camel round-up.
Further episodes will follow him as he travels across the continent. If you fancy joining him, why not come to Down Under Live, in the UK this autumn.
