Like the Galapagos Islands, Rottnest and the Mystery Islands of Western Australia hold secrets that defy reason. Only now will they be revealed with an exclusive and intimate look at the inhabitants and those intertwined in their lives on the islands and in the fringing ocean. For the first time in the world we film the entire life-cycle of the mysterious Quokka, the Little Penguin and the Tiger snake, using the latest filming equipment and techniques to build a complete picture of the wildlife on this unique set of islands. We’ll reveal exactly how these extreme experiments in evolution operate and expose the secrets of life, on Rottnest and the Mystery Islands.
