An Epic Exploration

Huge bushfires ravage the ancient landscape in the dry season and the world’s biggest thunderstorms bring torrential rain and flooding in the wet season. These almost Jurassic conditions have created some of the richest wetlands on Earth.

The coast, rivers and waterholes are haunted by sharks. The plains are guarded by territorial buffalo and venomous snakes, but the apex predator here is a living dinosaur, the salt water crocodile. They have been on the planet in almost identical form for 200 million years – even surviving the extinction of the rest of the dinosaurs.

Australia’s Great Wild North will carry the viewers across the whole Top End of Australia, from the wild Kimberly coast through mysterious and rarely seen Arnhem Land and then deep into the world’s oldest rainforest in Cape York.


There are no upcoming events at this time.
