This three-part series will be an exploration of Oz as it follows John’s adventures Down Under.

Using his original diary from the 1992 road trip as a guidebook, John will be cycling routes from Sydney up the East Coast of Australia towards far Northern Queensland.

Along the way, he will meet an extraordinary range of characters, hear their stories and experience Australia’s natural wonders. All of these Aussie experiences will be framed with John’s astute comedic observations, which have become the hallmark of his hugely successful stand-up shows.

Over three one hour episodes, John will be examining how the country has changed since his first trip 22 years ago, and learning what it means to be an Australian in 2014.

Speaking about his return to Australia and the series, John said: “Retracing the steps of a journey which holds such amazing memories has been an incredible experience and a real privilege.

“I met some amazing people the first time round and I’m delighted to say I did it again, it’s the people and their stories that make Australia great. The scenery isn’t bad either.”
