Foxtel’s hugely popular factual series Coast Australia, presented by world-renowned British archaeologist and television presenter Neil Oliver has commenced production on season four.\
Each one hour episode of season four will showcase a different strip of Australia’s spectacular coastline, as Neil Oliver and histeam of co-presenters gather stories about the history, the people, the archaeology, the geography and the marine life of each region, investigating fascinating and little-known facts along the way.
The regions explored across each state this season include: Sydney Harbour, the west coast of Tasmania, the Great Australian Bight, Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay, Bunbury to Geraldton in Western Australia, Cocos and Christmas Island, Cooktown to Karumba in Queensland and Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory.
Foxtel’s General Manager of Entertainment and Factual Channels, Jim Buchan said “It’s incredibly exciting to be bringing a fourth season of Coast Australia to our audience, who’ve demonstrated over the past three seasons how they simply can’t get enough of this spectacular series. The show gives us a fantastic opportunity to capture untold Australian history in an accessible, contemporary way while also exploring our rich, diverse and stunning landscape.”
Throughout the series, Neil will again be joined by some of Australia’s leading experts in their field: palaeontologist Professor Tim Flannery, historian Dr Alice Garner, marine ecologist Professor Emma Johnston and marine biologist, Dr Dean Miller.
Also joining the Coast Australia presenting team this season is archaeologist, anthropologist and founder of the Australian Indigenous Archaeologist Association, Dave Johnston. Dave has worked as an archaeologist in Australia since 1990 and during that time has completed over 2000 archaeological and Indigenous heritage projects.
