Summary
Aboard the legendary Ghan and Indian Pacific Railways, Michael uncovers the great feats of engineering which enabled travellers to cross this vast, inhospitable continent. On his journeys, Michael climbs in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, explores the remote Australian Red Centre at Alice Springs and the tropical rainforests of Queensland. He hears dream-time stories from the indigenous Arrende people and enjoys 'bush-tucker' over a camp fire. In Victoria he helps with sheep shearing, strikes gold in Kalgoorlie and swims over coral at the Great Barrier Reef. In Melbourne Portillo encounters the nation's heroes--Dame Nellie Melba and the outlaw Ned Kelly and learns about efforts to conserve the country's emblems, the kangaroo and the koala. In the Sydney metropolis he climbs the magnificent Sydney Harbour Bridge and tours the building which changed the image of Australia, its iconic Opera House
