Summary Simon Reeve travels down the east coast to Sydney and Melbourne on the final part of his Australian journey. Simon's trip begins in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast. Behind the sun and surf, this area has become the organised crime capital of Australia. Police are cracking down on outlaw motorcycle clubs, accused of being criminal gangs. Simon meets one of the most notorious bikie groups to hear their side of the story. In the wealthy east coast suburbs, Simon has a different kind of encounter, joining a vet and his team who rescue and treat injured koalas - thousands of which are killed each year by cars and pet dogs. Arriving in Sydney, Simon discovers a city of huge cultural diversity closely linked to its booming Asian neighbours, India and China. One in ten Aussies are now of Asian origin. Simon gauges Australia's attitude to immigration and meets the country's first Muslim ladies Aussie Rules football team. On the very last stretch of the journey, Simon takes to the air to witness the devastating and deadly bush fires that have been ripping through the country, before reaching his final destination, Melbourne, just in time to celebrate Australia Day.
