For centuries, the island continent of Australia remained a blank space on the map. Its fierce climate and vast empty interior remained untouched and untamed.

Among the explorers who opened up the country were a remarkable collection of Scots. This film tells the story of the Scottish exploration of Australia - a tale of astonishing skill, bravery and fortitude in one of the most difficult environments on earth.
