Episode 12 - Arafura File Snake – Arnhem Land, Northern Territory
Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory is Australia’s final frontier. Cut off by floods from the rest of the country for six months a year, Brandon and Kayne arrive too early so their first challenge is getting across the East Alligator River – a croc-infested expanse of water that is not for the faint-hearted. Once inside Arnhem Land they meet a few locals from the indigenous community, who help them track down an Arafura File Snake, which Kayne has to cook and eat with his new friends. But there is just one catch – this rare delicacy lives in water – the same water that crocodiles live in! Will Kayne survive this heart-pumping challenge to enjoy his feast? Will the locals enjoy his cooking skills?
