Kamil Ellis, a 14-year-old Wiradjuri boy joins ABC3's energetic Kayne Tremills on a wild adventure around Australia in Bushwhacked! - Series 2 which starts Friday 7.30pm on ABC3.

In Bushwhacked! - Series 2 Kamil shows Kayne Indigenous rites and rituals, native wildlife as well as challenging him to some heart-pounding missions, including racing a whale shark and hugging a sawfish.

Bushwhacked! - Series 2 produced by Mint Pictures will be distributed internationally by the ACTF.
