Australia is a traveler's paradise: a land of stunning coral beaches that give way to vast tracts of parched red earth wilderness. It's also booming like never before, thanks to its treasure trove of mineral riches. In Episode 3, Simon Reeve meets members of a notorious Gold Coast motorcycle gang; helps a vet and his team rescue injured koalas; interviews a Sydney billionaire who houses new migrants from China; and visits Australia's first Muslim women's football team. On the last leg of his journey, he witnesses devastating Bush fires before celebrating Australia Day in Melbourne.
