Summary
Martin Clunes is off to Australia, however, he's eschewing the traditional hot spots in favour of some of the countries most remote, diverse and interesting islands. And he's got more than 8000 to choose from! Across three beautifully shot episodes, Martin travels to the four points of the compass and visits sixteen islands to provide a cross-section of what island life is all about. Starting at Fort Denison, a former island prison in Sydney's harbour, he flies east, taking in islands at the very far reaches of Australia's territory, including Lord Howe Island and Norfolk Island, the remotest island on Martin's journey - 1500km from the mainland. On Norfolk he meets descendants of the legendary Bounty mutineers, who relocated here from Pitcairn Island in 1856 and gets a glimpse into its dark, convict past. On Friday Island he meets former pearl fisherman and learns about the Japanese divers who settled here, while the Tiwi Islands in the north give Martin a first-hand experience of Aboriginal culture. At the Magical Muirons, he swims amongst the coral with clownfish, stingrays, turtles - and a whale shark; on Philip Island he meets penguins and tears up a racetrack in a Mini Cooper; he comes face-to-face with deadly tiger snakes on Carnac and on Maria Island he investigates a Tasmanian devil conservation programme. From shipwrecks and real-life Robinson Crusoes to remote cultures and curious creatures, Martin Clunes encounters them all on his Islands of Australia
