But for this tour there is a big difference … Deadly 60 Down Under will for the first time feature Steve live on stage with some of Australia’s deadliest animals! Plus there will be loads of audience participation and on stage fun and opportunities to ask Steve questions about all his adventures! Steve will share stories and show us some of the wildest Deadly footage from his times in Australia … being lowered from a helicopter to dangle into a crocodile’s nest, or hand catching the world’s most venomous octopus just off Sydney Harbour.
“I am thrilled to be coming back to my favourite Deadly country – Australia – with my most exciting show ever. This tour is particularly exciting for me as I will be visiting Australia from the top to the bottom including some of my favourite cities plus regional centres that we have never visited before, including: Rockhampton, Mackay, Maryborough, Caloundra, Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour, Lismore, Toowoomba, Geraldton and Darwin!” Steve Backshall
Naturalist Steve Backshall is best known for a children’s TV show Deadly 60, in which he tracks down the world’s most dangerous animals. He is an author, expedition leader, naturalist, wildlife expert and a fearless presenter. Having travelled the world to learn about the most inspiring predators, Steve has been swum with sharks, been bitten by a caiman, squirted with ink by Humboldt squid, flirted with by tarantula, charged by elephants, and stared out by thresher and great hammerhead sharks, but still maintains that wild animals pose no threat to people – in fact quite the opposite.
“At a time when so much of television is read from autocue, it is a joy to come across complete professionals whose love for their subject is second only to their knowledge of it. Those who don’t have young children may not have come across Steve Backshall; those who do will know that he’s one of the best-informed and most impressive presenters on television on either side of the Atlantic” The Guardian
Deadly 60 can be seen weekdays on ABCME.
