Ray Mears goes Down Under for the trip of a lifetime.

Wildlife expert and survivalist Ray Mears has been to Oz several times before – but for this seven-part series he’s going deeper into the wilderness to discover its weird and wonderful wildlife.

The first stop on his epic journey is the Ningaloo Coast, along the Indian Ocean.

After a long, hot day trekking across the rocky desert of the Mandu Mandu Gorge, Ray arrives at Ningaloo Reef, where he fulfils a lifelong dream by swimming with a whale shark.

With Australia’s amazing animals and breathtaking scenery,
we know there’ll be lots more to see in this series – and we wouldn’t have anyone else but Ray as our guide.

Not showing in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
