In this program of Travel Oz, Australians and their passion for sport. They love to watch it, they love even more to take part in it. Travel Oz relives some of Australia’s iconic and unusual sporting moments.
Australia’s wide-open spaces and warm sunny weather have encouraged Australians to get out and experience a multitude of sporting activities.
Undaunted by hostile conditions, Aussies have adapted,
playing golf in the desert, running ultra marathons across the outback. Such is their competitive spirit, they’ve raced everything from camels and horses, to ferries and yachts.
They’re toughed it out in rodeos, boxed till they were battered and bruised and they’ve invented sporting codes of their own, and created contests using traditional indigenous hunting weapons.
Travel Oz is presented by veteran documentary maker GREG GRAINGER, with feature reports from the Two Tims – Tim Charody and Tim Doyle and Vet Dr Sally Grainger.
