Australia is like no other continent on Earth. Isolated from the rest of the world for a staggering 45 million years, this enormous island contains a breathtaking array of distinctive and bizarre species. From the tropical jungle to the vast shallow coral reefs, from burning deserts to snowy mountains, this series reveals how the continent became a land of unique landscapes and wildlife.

This is a world apart - a parched sunburnt country, the flattest and driest inhabited continent on Earth - and yet it has spawned a range of lush islands each with wildlife stranger than the next. Human invaders settled, and added to the mix - with dingoes, rabbits, cane toads, feral horses and a range of cultures and traditions that impacted on the wildlife like nowhere else.

Wild Australasia is an epic journey of exploration - an investigation of the natural wonders of Australia and its closest islands. From the tropical jungle to the vast shallow coral reefs; from burning deserts to snowy mountains; from temperate forests to tiny offshore islands; the series reveals how the continent was transformed from a lush green wilderness to a thriving developed nation with a vast desert at its heart.
