Summary
  • Lord Howe island: This episode looks at Lord Howe Island, in the middle of the Tasman Sea, home to only 350 people and the worlds most southern coral reef, with a beautiful blue lagoon. This pristine environment is endangered by pollution from the outside world, which is threatening the rare bird and marine life
  • Macquarie island: This episode looks at Macquarie Island, located halfway between Australia and Antarctica in the middle of the Southern Ocean, and home to a research base for Australia's Antarctic Division. It is a World Heritage Area
  • Norfolk island: This episode looks at Norfolk Island, a small island in the Pacific ocean between Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia, with pristine views 360 degrees all round. It is a self-governing island and has a fascinating history of convicts and mutineers, with many of its people direct descendents of Fletcher Christian and his mutineers from the Bounty
