AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Bushwhacked!' an ABC3 adventure series which will see child actor Brandon Walters (Australia) take ABC3 host Kayne Tremills on a tour of Australia's most spectacular locations. Filming started in Tasmania, and will continue in a variety of places such as tropical Queensland, the Red Centre in the Northern Territory, the Eyre peninsula coastline in South Australia, northern and rural NSW and urban Victoria.

Each episode will feature bushman Brandon Walters introducing 'city-slicker' Kayne Tremills to these remote locations while they observe the Indigenous rites, rituals and native wildlife of each location. Walters will also be setting adrenaline pumping challenges for Tremills, such as tagging a tiger snake, sky diving, swimming with great white sharks and much more.

The series hopes to show viewers what it's like to survive in the bush, as well as how to do so, by demonstrating how to find food and medicine in such an environment. The show will also introduce viewers to Aboriginal elders, bushmen and jackaroos.' Source: www.artshub.com.au/au (Sighted 10/02/2012).
