Jon Muir is no stranger to extreme adventures. He has climbed Mt. Everest, walked to the South Pole and the North Pole, paddled alone in a sea kayak to the tip of Cape York; but this solo walk, which took him across four of the driest deserts in the world, was to be his toughest challenge to date. His only equipment was two trekking poles and a homemade cart, containing a a few essentials, which he pulled behind him. The bulk of his food came from what he could hunt or gather along the way. Alone Across Australia is a film about Jon's epic and spiritual journey into the heart and soul of Austalia.
