Storyline

In 1931 Harold Lasseter's body was found in Central Australia's deserts. His diary revealed that he'd found gold, worth millions...but that he'd give it all for a loaf of bread... The gold is still yet to be found. Filmmaker Luke Walker finds Lasseter's 85 year-old son, still searching the desert, not only for gold, but something far more precious. Now, 80 years since Lasseter set off from Alice Springs to meet his fate, is it possible to piece together the fragments of history he left behind? Armed with a camera and the unshakable belief that he will find gold in Lasseter's story, Walker sets out to unravel the tangle of myths, lies and legend that lie buried with Lasseter's bones in the heart of Australia.

An Adventure a Century in the Making
6 June 2016 | by henrykimballSee all my reviews

With gripping film-work by Director Luke Walker and Bob Lasseter's unwavering charisma, you can't help but fall in love with the Legend of Lasseter's Bones. As the two traverse the deadly landscapes of the Australian desert you find yourself not only rooting for the duo, but feeling as if you're travelling beside them. The journey to find the reef transforms into an adventure that has you creating a mental whiteboard full of connected dots and loose ends. You feel the frustration that the cast does when a trail runs dry, and the overwhelming joy when you find yourself a step closer to the fortune. Australia's Lost Gold is a treasure hunt on the surface, a personal journey at heart, and most of all, a film definitely worth the watch.
