Mike Rowe has tackled some of the toughest jobs around the world, and now he’s heading Down Under in a brand new season of Dirty Jobs. To find the dirtiest jobs Australia has to offer, Mike traverses the country meeting the men and women who perform these tasks daily.
In Adelaide, Mike removes venomous brown snakes from people’s homes, then travels north to Darwin to learn more about the infamous cane toad population. Next on the agenda is a trip to Coober Pedy, home of Australia’s opal mining industry. Mike joins the local miners in their hazardous and painstaking attempts to strike it rich.
Then it’s back to Australia’s northern coastline, where Mike journeys along hazardous dirt roads to learn how to live off the land like the locals. And finally, Mike joins researchers on the Adelaide River and attempts to capture one of our country’s most fascinating creatures: the saltwater crocodile.
