Only in Oz is an action-packed and often irreverent adventure series, following four young Australians as they criss-cross the world’s only island continent to discover the precious, proud and truly out of the ordinary. Delving into the past, present and future, each of the astonishing eight episodes explores a part of the Australian experience that defines and unites its people. From Ned Kelly to Ningaloo, shipwrecks to sinkholes, opals to aliens, Only in Oz tells the often-unexpected stories connected to landscape, history, science, and society that all contribute to make Australia unique.

A Spotlight on Australia

“Putting together a series like this highlighted not only the unique character of the people living in Australia,”

“…but just how intertwined the forces of the land are in shaping that character. It’s this close connection between the Australian experience (encompassing its climate, geography and history) and the Australian character that we’ve tried to plumb in this series.

– Eliot Buchan, Series Producer
