Funnel Web Spider – Lamington National Park, Queensland
Brandon and Kayne face their creepiest, crawliest mission so far, as they head into the Lamington National Park rainforest in South-East Queensland to track down one of the world’s deadliest spiders – a Northern Tree-Dwelling Funnel Web! What does ‘tickling’ a deadly spider really mean? Find out, as the boys start their latest mission high above the trees, hang-gliding into the lush terrain, and begin their search on two-wheeled Segways. Along the way, they meet the local Yugambeh people, who share their knowledge of bush tucker and medicine. Kayne is happy to learn Funnel-web Spider is not on the menu!

Episode 6
1828: Alice
Alice and her friend, George, have each adopted a piglet as their own. Alice’s piglet is called Wilhelmina and George’s is called Benny. When Alice’s father declares a half-day picnic, Alice and George propose a pig race between Wilhelmina and Benny, as part of the entertainment. Alice’s siblings – Maryann and Little Sam – enter a third pig in the race, a lumbering, old sow named Oink. Oink doesn’t strike Alice or George as posing much of a threat, but they each fear defeat from the other’s entry. And that’s when the skulduggery begins. There’s no end to the sneakiness Alice and George will employ against each other, in order to win first prize: a cake baked by Sarah. But, have they overlooked something?
