Shooting for Episode 01 took place across the Red Centre of the Northern Territory, with the aim of inspiring viewers to visit this unique region. Made possible by Tourism NT, we worked together to establish the most compelling stories in the most breathtaking locations. From understanding indigenous history to star gazing under the dark night sky, this series showcases some of the best tourism experiences Australia has to offer.
BEHIND THE SCENES
Some of the stunning aerial shots were captured via helicopter in Kings Canyon. We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to shoot during sunset which allowed for some of the most breathtaking Australian scenery we’ve captured to date. With a small and dynamic team, we were able to move around efficiently and support each other to make the most use of the small windows we had.
Karrke Aboriginal Tours based in Kings Canyon educates their audience about the cultural heritage of the indigenous land.
