In CAPTAIN KANGAROO AND THE BIG BUSH BASH, five teams test their skills in this infamous race that takes contestants across the beautiful Australian landscape. Our teams cross the Murray in a paddlesteamer, search for opals in the Opal Fields of Lightning Ridge, meet the Flying Doctors in Alice, and finally reach the finish line in Broken Hill a little dusty but no worse for wear.
