Trivia

The idea for the show came from a series of skits from The Late Show (1992) entitled "Wallaby Jack". See more »

Goofs

There is a running gag through out the serious of deliberate continuity and factual errors. For example when two people go to shake hands there is a cut to a close up shot of two hands shaking, but it always the same clip no matter who we see about to shake hands. See more »

Quotes

Russell Coight: Some of the animals are nocturnal, so the best time to see them is at night. Only you can't see them, because it's dark.

Crazy Credits

The silver-tailed Kookaburra is a protected species and should not be tagged, shot or exploded without written approval from the Department of Wildlife. No animal was hurt more than once in the making of this program. Look for the Lee Kernaghan - Russell Coight duets album "Country Cousins" in stores now See more »

Hilarious
11 July 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is the funniest outback adventure show I have ever seen. Glenn Robbins is hilarious as the incompetent Russell Coight, who is a typical outback bloke - with a difference. He is constantly having his tent collapse on him, his car gets stuck at least once an episode (and he somehow manages to get out every time, but we never see that), he meets outback folk and interviews them badly. He knows nothing about the bush, and if you ever hear him say the words "this is an endangered species" be warned - that species numbers are about to go down by one.
