Australian science teacher, Phil Breslin, is on a quest to learn how to survive the traditional way in some of Australia and New Zealand’s most hostile environments. Passionate about the natural world Breslin is more than comfortable in his home state of Queensland. Stepping outside his comfort zone, Phil is not so confident that he could survive outside his ‘Sunshine State’. After meeting with the local tribes for advice, he will rely on their ancient wisdom and practices to endure everything from the scorching heat of the Australian Outback to the bitter cold of New Zealand’s Rotorua region.
