In Currumbin, Queensland the colourful Rainbow Lorikeets are shown in close up. Finally in Tasmania, at Winaleah one of the only three remaining farms where hand made cheese is produced shown. Using traditional methods unchanged for decades, we see how cheese used to be made before modern mass production made these methods obsolete.
