A celebration of the Australian seascape – from its natural grandeur to the quirky individualism of those who live beside it – this is the heartfelt and pertinent story of the issues facing Australia's coast today and the resilience of its communities at a turning point. Travelling from the Torres Strait to Tasmania and from the showy beaches of Sydney to a beautiful village that endures despite the loss of its fishing fleet, this journey is imbued with a sense of optimism and humor. Even as new economic imperatives emerge and the shift in climate becomes apparent, The Coast revels in the heritage and character of Australia's shores.
