Outback Brothers Season 1
SYNOPSIS: We meet the Outback Brothers: Dan, Tom and Ben Falzon. Together with their father Joey, they embark on an inspiring adventure to one of the most hostile environments in the world: Outback Australia.
It won’t be easy but their love of nature, adventure and vision to help the planet and build a sanctuary to combat climate change knows no bounds.
In order to keep the dream alive, the Outback Brothers supplement their income working as paramedics and are confronted by an undercurrent of violence and despair that plagues their new home town in the Northern Territory.
Nonetheless, all three brothers find love in the rugged outback and they are ready to hang on for the ride of their life.
SYNOPSIS: When they first arrive on their desert property, the brothers take over a rundown rustic homestead and their plan to convert it into a earth sanctuary slowly takes shape.
The renovation forces all three boys outside to sleep under the incredible outback stars and they are introduced to a ‘swag’, otherwise known as an Aussie bedroll, kicking off an unforgettable celestial adventure that sees them spending every night under the stars for the next 10 years.
As our Outback Brothers settle further into life in the outback, the time comes for both Tom and Dan to put a roof over their families heads. With little funds, they explore ways to build sustainably and come up with some incredible eco-friendly dwellings.
Although their paramedical work continues to be dangerous, it’s still paying the way for their eco tourism business: Earth Sanctuary.
With the business starting to show some real promise, the boys decide that brewing their own beer might help them take things to the next level. They seek out advice from the locals on adding some bush tucker ingredients.
SYNOPSIS: The Earth Sanctuary education tours start to gain traction but finances are still tight and now two of the boys have children to worry about. A decision to expand the dinner programs as well as running wedding events takes huge commitment. The extra income is helpful but at what cost?
The boys struggle with time management and fear they are losing focus on the bigger issue of ongoing climate change. Paramedical work is not slowing down and is adding to the pressure of growing the business and finding a good work/life balance.
Adding to the drama, Dan makes an emergency call to his mate Rex to come and remove a snake from the kids’ play pen.
