Wild Steve’s deadliest 60

WILD LIFE: TV presenter Steve Backshall, pictured on a mountain climb, comes to Geelong this month.

After sell-out Australian tours wildlife TV presenter Steve Backshall returns to Geelong with his craziest show yet, Deadly 60 Down Under.

The English naturalist visits Costa Hall on 23 January with some of Australia’s most deadly animals in his nationwide tour.

“I’m coming back to Australia! This time we’re doing things a little bit different – we’re on walkabout,” he said.

“We’re travelling all the way down the east coast of Australia on our Battle Bus.”

Backshall will share stories and videos of his Australian adventures and answer audience questions about his wildest exploits.

“There will be stunts, audience participation, some of Australia’s most extraordinary wildlife on stage and loads of craziness!” he said.

“I cannot wait to see you there”

Backshall is best known for BBC Earth children’s 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.

Backshall has swum with sharks, been bitten by a caiman, squirted with ink by Humboldt squid, flirted with by tarantulas, withstood an elephant charge and stared down hammerhead sharks.

But he still maintains that wild animals pose no threat to people – in fact quite the opposite.
