Movie Reviews

Excellent natural history adventure!

"I have viewed this DVD three times (got it from the library). It is excellent for anyone interested in travel to Australia, nature and natural history. It covers many national parks and out-of-the-way places that the average traveler to Australia could easily miss. I learned a great deal about unusual animals, plants and destinations from this DVD; the footage is truly fantastic. Only problem is that now I am VERY eager to start planning a trip to Australia! Enjoy! This copy is to be a gift for a friend."

These movies are all informative, and Australia itself is of course gorgeous. Some people seem to think the only things in Australia are kangaroos, koalas, Aborigines, Crocodile Dundee, and Steve Irwin feeding his baby to the crocodiles. Students in China will ask you "What is the weather like in Australia?" as if a country roughly the size of China or the USA has the same weather from east to west and north to south. These films will show you otherwise, but it is annoying that I can't find a single DVD about Australia made by Australians. These are distinctly American, even though the third has a British narrator.
Australia, the beautiful
