Bushwhacked! - Series 2

Synopsis

Bushwhacked! - Series 2 weaves adventure, travel, food, wildlife, history and culture as Kayne Tremills goes on the adventure of a lifetime with Indigenous co-host Kamil Ellis.

Crisscrossing Australia in search of adventure and Aboriginal culture, the hosts meet wildlife experts and Indigenous communities who help Kayne achieve his mission.

Chasing down dangerous spiders, killer sharks and venomous snakes, as well as friendly penguins, loveable turtles, a cantankerous cassowary, amongst other rare and endangered native Australian animals, the boys are constantly kept on their toes. And adventure is always calling as they challenge each other to death-defying experiences by rock climbing, skydiving or hurtling down a steep sand dune on a board to get to their mission.

Travelling to stunning locations from the Ningaloo Reef and Fitzroy River in Western Australia to Uluru and Kings Canyon in the Northern Territory, and to the tropical beauty of Heron Island on the Great Barrier Reef, Bushwhacked! is a high-octane, adventure-fuelled wildlife based series for the whole family.
