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.

Definitely a must watch
8 June 2016 | by Joseph FrostSee all my reviews

In the central Australian desert, one man's legacy lives on like the sand on the hills and the bones of creatures long gone. That man is Harold Lasseter. Harold discovered ("supposedly") a reef of gold in central Australia worth billions. No one believed him, and he died before the gold could be found. His son, Bob, never knew his father; he left when he was 6 years old, never to be seen again. Even so, Harold left a mark on his son that would shape his entire life. Bob has spent years trying to find that elusive gold in order to clear his father's name. Director Luke Walker joins him in that quest in Australia's Lost Gold. The story has surprises at every turn; I found myself enthralled in the mystery of that long, lost gold. Highly recommend for anyone that loves adventure.
