This off-beat series follows the exploits of the Bush Mechanics, a group of engaging Aboriginal characters, as they travel through central Australia. A blend of documentary and drama with anecdotes of life in the bush, each of the four episodes illuminates a particular aspect of Warlpiri life from gathering bush tucker and living in a humpy to football and rock and roll. Combining adventure, magical realism and a distinctive brand of indigenous humor, the series provides a unique insight into both contemporary and tradiditonal Aboriginal culture.
