The survival expert presents a guide to outback and beyond in this journey across Australia.
Mears begins with the Ningaloo Coast in Western Australia, an area famous for its limestone cliffs that were created 20 million years ago. He examines some of the ancient and current wildlife of the area.
From the past, Mears guides us through the fossilised remains of a shark that’s bigger than a double-decker bus. From the present, he swims in the Indian Ocean with the biggest species of fish in the world, the whale shark.
Australian Wilderness with Ray Mears is on ITV at 20.00.
