Bushwhacked! - Series 3

Synopsis

Kayne is ready to brave Kamil’s new round of bigger and bolder adrenalin-fuelled outback missions in Bushwhacked! - Series 3.

Bushwhacked! follows Wiradjuri boy, Kamil Ellis, and Kayne Tremills, as they traverse remote corners of Australia in search of weird and wonderful wildlife, Indigenous rites and rituals, and (of course) adrenalin-fuelled, dramatic missions.

In Series 3, Kamil has drawn up a list of challenges set to send his co-host more than a little green, including; a matchmaking mission involving the world’s most venomous snake; a wade through croc-infested waters to catch a rare Freshwater Pygmy Crocodile; an unexpected brush with a Bull Shark; and the nigh-impossible task of spotting the extremely rare Albino Kangaroo. 

Episodes

Episode 1 Wedge-Tailed Eagle

Kayne and Kamil are on a soaring mission from Perth to Lorna Glen deep in the Western Australia desert, where Kayne must follow and observe the movements of a Wedge-Tailed Eagle.

Episode 2 Pygmy Crocs

Bushwhacked’s intrepid hosts are on a mission to the Bullo River in the Northern Territory to explore a potentially new distinct crocodile species – the Freshwater Pygmy Crocodile.

Episode 3 Humpback Whale

The beautiful Noosa coastline is the backdrop for a shower that Kayne won’t be forgetting in a hurry.

Episode 4 Albino Kangaroo

It’s a mission that smacks of a needle in a haystack; the boys are in a hot-air balloon above Canberra to spot an incredibly elusive and rare Albino Kangaroo.

Episode 5 Croc Island Rangers

It’s an invitation-only trip for the well-traveled hosts to the remote Crocodile Islands located off the coast of North East Arnhem Land.

Join Kamil and Kayne on a Top End croc tale tinged with urgency and jeopardy and featuring some of the most spectacular scenery in the country.

Episode 7 Inland Taipan

A matchmaking mission that takes Kayne and Kamil to Lake Eyre and Cooper Pedy, but far from romantic, this adventure involves the world’s most venomous snake!
