The first in a three-part series following comedian John Bishop as he sets off on an Australian adventure, cycling from Sydney to Cairns. John first made this journey back in 1992 and in 2014 he is back to see how this incredible country has changed. Along the route John meets extraordinary people, hears fascinating stories and experiences some true natural wonders.

In this episode, John tests his nerves with a death-defying abseil in the stunning Blue Mountains, gets hands-on with the most dangerous snakes on the planet and finds out about the surprising bedtime habits of the most Australian animal of all: the koala.
