Untold Australia takes viewers to one of our most isolated and iconic towns in BIRDSVILLE OR BUST

Advertisement

Birdsville Or Bust follows the story of the isolated and iconic Australian outback town of Birdsville.

The town’s population of just over 100 people mushrooms twice a year with a flood of almost 20,000 partygoers who transform this quiet outpost.

For one weekend in September the dusty desert hosts The Birdsville Races, dubbed ‘The Melbourne Cup of the Outback’, and for three days in July there’s The Big Red Bash, billed as the world’s most remote music festival.

But what happens when the tourists depart, the mercury hits 49.5 degrees Celsius and an army of flies occupies this remote town?

Untold Australia – Birdsville Or Bust airs tonight, Tuesday, 12th January at 8.30pm on SBS and On Demand
