This Travel Oz features the opal mining capital of Coober Pedy, the city of Adelaide and more of the Gondwana Rainforests.
Witness a miner attempting to strike it rich on the opal fields before jewellers carefully craft the opals into rings and pendants. Survey an underground house and see what it’s like playing golf on an all dirt course.
Our Adelaide gourmet journey begins at the Adelaide Central Markets, before sampling Australia’s finest pinot noir in a vineyard at the base of the Adelaide Hills. Glenelg offers beautiful sightseeing opportunities and an adrenaline rush on a jet boat ride.
From pademelons to birds, Tim O’Reilly reveals some of the spectacular wildlife that inhabit the Gondwana Rainforests. A real treat is in store when wildlife cinematographer Glen Trelfo, the only person to capture the Albert’s Lyre Bird on film, shares his very special footage.
Travel Oz is presented by veteran documentary maker GREG GRAINGER, with feature reports from the Two Tims – Tim Charody and Tim Doyle.
