Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Bushwhacked! is an Australian educational kids' adventure series that teaches viewers about the Australian bush and aboriginal culture. The young hosts often participate in adrenaline-pumping activities like skydiving, gliding, and swimming with sharks. They handle unique and sometimes dangerous animals, too -- but it's all done with experts using safety gear, and no one gets hurt.
Is It Any Good?
This lively series offers viewers of all ages the chance to see parts of the Australian bush, and to learn more about who, and what, lives in it. The high-energy hosts are extremely likable, and their enthusiasm is contagious as they embark on one exciting trip after another. But Brandon Walters, and later, Kamil Ellis, the Wiradjuri teen who replaced Walters after the first season, also serve as the bridge between Kayne Tremills and the different aboriginal people they meet along the way, especially since Tremills had never entered the bush before appearing in the series. Episode after episode, the commitment to teaching about their home and about their unique contributions to the country to a younger generation is evident. The endless array of interesting things to see and learn, combined with lots of adrenaline-filled moments, make Bushwhacked! a great series to tune into.
Did we miss something on diversity?
