Trailer:

Ted Egan journeys north from tropical Cairns in far north Queensland into the frontier country of Cape York Peninsula.

He visits the fabulous Mirage Resort near Port Douglas and crosses the crocodile infested Daintree River and climbs the mysterious Black Mountain on his way to Cooktown where he meets a fascinating painter of native flowers.

At Mary Valley Station Ted meets the Shepherds, one of the Cape’s pioneer families, visits Lakefield National Park with its profusion of animal and bird life. He takes part in the Cape’s most famous one day cricket match at Musgrave Cattle Station and sings his famous “Drover’s Boy” song to a group of travellers.

Finally Ted visits the Quinkan Galleries where Aboriginal arts created thousands of years ago remains perfectly preserved.
