Bushwhacked! - Series 2
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, and 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.

Spiders – it’s one of the largest phobias people have around the world. So how will Kayne & Kamil go when they have to come face to face with a Giant Whistling Tarantula!
It’s one thing to take a “selfie” what about trying to take a happy snap with a giant Manta Ray while swimming underneath it! Yup, that’s the challenge for Kayne today!
Just because the Emu can’t fly, doesn’t mean it can’t run fast… See how our two adventurers go in trying to track an Emu and see if they can borrow one of its eggs!
