Australia - the oldest continent on earth. Isolated from the rest of the world for millions of years, plants and animals have become unique in "Down Under". In a five-part journey through the most spectacular national parks we dive into Australia's breathtaking wilderness.
We cross lush rainforest and snow-capped mountains, swim with whale sharks through coral reefs, find the last devils in the Tasmanian forests and observe red giant kangaroos in the desert. The wilderness has many faces in Australia. We visit people who face the loneliness and wildness of the country and face scorching drought, bush fires and other adversities. Those who do not regard the outback as hostile to life, but as a source of food and who are not even afraid of the worst floods out of concern for their endangered fauna.
