Home / Explore / Experiences / AUSTRALIA'S GREAT WILD NORTH
  • Far Northern Australia is a land of extremes. Huge bushfires ravage the ancient landscape in the dry season and the world’s biggest thunderstorms bring torrential rain and flooding in the wet season. These almost Jurassic conditions have created some of the richest wetlands on Earth.

    The coast, rivers and waterholes are haunted by sharks. The plains are guarded by territorial buffalo and venomous snakes, but the apex predator is a living dinosaur: the saltwater crocodile. Saltwater crocodiles have been on the planet in almost identical form for 200 million years -- even surviving the meteor strike that wiped out the rest of the dinosaurs.

    Embark on an epic journey through some of the wildest landscapes on Earth, as you dive deep into the crocodile's world. Venture across the whole Top-End of Australia, from the wild Kimberly coast through the mysterious and rarely seen Arnhem Land, and into the world’s oldest rainforest in Cape York.

    TELUS World of Science – Edmonton and K2 Film Distributors are proud to announce that a portion of all IMAX tickets sold to Australia’s Great Wild North (from March 20 through May 31) will go to support those impacted by the Australia fires. Funds will be distributed through the Canadian Red Cross..
