In 2018 the Mud￼ and Saltwater Short Film Fest screened ‘Surviving the Kimberley’ filmed and produced by adventurer Michael Atkinson. Outback Mike started a new adventure today, in a dug out canoe he carved himself, along the North Queensland coast. Really recommend you watch Mike’s adventures, which he will film himself and make into another award winning feature. Great guy you gotta watch it 🐊 🌊 🛶 🎥 ...
