Abstract:

Join host Greg Grainger as he swims with manta rays and whales, tracks endangered seals and kangaroos, and watches birds that fly backwards. Explore four of Australia's 20,000 islands, all with an abundance of wildlife: Lady Elliot Island, with its colonies of seabirds, manta rays, turtles, and humpback whales; Kangaroo Island with its subspecies of kangaroos, as well as koalas and endangered sea lions; the idyllic Lord Howe Island, with the endangered Lord Howe Island woodhen and the Red-tailed Tropicbird; and subantarctic Macquarie Island, with its huge colonies of colorful king penguins and enormous elephant seals. From tropical beaches to subzero temperatures, Australia's Greatest Islands guides viewers through the abundance of unique wildlife while exploring how these species survive.
