This program introduces various features of the natural environment in five themes.

The Sea Around Us focuses on the coastlines where most Australians live and the pressure that this places on these fragile systems. Varied Environments surveys a range of landscapes from alpine pastures to dusty desert plains, from the humid tropics of the north to the temperate zones of the south. Flora and Fauna provides a glimpse of Australia’s unique plants and animals, from birdlife on the islands of the Great Barrier Reef to a lake ecosystem in Kosciuszko National Park. Natural Disasters reveals nature in the extreme - earthquakes, bushfires, droughts, floods and cyclones. And contrasting Indigenous and non-Indigenous attitudes are considered in Developing Land.
