COAST AUSTRALIA Season 3 – Ep 1 Sneak Peek

In the opening episode of the third season of Coast Australia, Neil Oliver heads offshore and ticks a big one off his bucket list.  He’s on the trail of that most majestic marine creature – the mighty Orca.  Neil also examines the notion that the ANZAC spirit was forged – not on the beaches of Gallipoli – but in the port of Albany where Australian and New Zealand troops gathered for their departure to World War One.

Brendan Moar reimagines the night Skylab fell to earth in Esperance in 1979.

Marine Ecologist Dr Emma Johnston investigates the now politically incorrect industry of whaling in the Western Australian town of Albany.  Dr Alice Garner travels to Lucky Bay to test whether it can legitimately claim the title of ‘whitest sand in Australia’.  And Professor Tim Flannery makes the journey offshore to Bald Island in search of an endangered marsupial with a taste for truffles.
