Movie Details

Discovery Atlas invites adventurous armchair vacationers to explore the world one person at a time with this release that offers unprecedented insight into the geography, religion, culture, and people of Australia. To outsiders Australia is a land well-known for its unforgiving yet hauntingly beautiful terrain, to the spirited people who live there it is the very definition of freedom. Now viewers can drop in for a visit with one of the world's oldest cultures as they step into rugged trucks, round up cattle on the world's biggest ranch, and travel 22,000 miles of coastline to compare the desolate desert landscape with the lush and fertile land of the coast. The people of Australia have weathered some of the driest, harshest conditions known to man, yet they remain steadfast and loyal to the land "down under" through thick and thin. From the Aborigines to the city dwellers who fill the streets of Melbourne, these are the people who keep one of the youngest nations on the planet constantly moving. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
