Motorkite Dreaming, an adventurous documentary, follows two mates, their fiancés and a support team as they complete a daring flight across 4000 KM of outback Australia. On their journey, they will visit over 20 Aboriginal language groups, offering the opportunity to share their unique experience with the oldest living cultures on Earth.
Motorkite Dreaming airs (pun intended) on tonight at 7:30pm on NITV, but before lift-off, take a moment to meet the team who will be going on this amazing adventure.
Remote Area Nurse & Shipwright
A spirited explorer, Aidan’s commitment to health and adventure has seen him sail to Indonesia, build a medical clinic in Ethiopia, and work in many outback Indigenous communities.
Technology guru, musician, gardener
A philosopher and peace-maker, laidback Daryl has travelled throughout Australia and the world, searching for culture, education and a challenge.
Remote Area Nurse
Resilient and determined, Lexi is no stranger to the challenges of the Outback – but this time she’s got a stowaway: Lexi is three months pregnant.
Elsie embarked on Motorkite Dreaming as her first Outback experience, eager to draw on her professional skills as a paediatric nurse, and travel experience ranging from Tonga to Nepal.
Filmmaker, cartoonist and comedian
Charlie has a passion for making cross-cultural films, including the award-winning Strange Birds in Paradise, and jumped at the chance to join his old mate Aidan on the adventure of a lifetime across the heartland of Australia.
Rock legend, Arts and business expert
Former member of the seminal Aboriginal reggae/rock band Us Mob, Carroll went on to a long career in business and the arts. A Ngarrindjerri man, Carroll and his mate Bart are the trip’s cultural liaisons and camp bosses.
Audio wiz, Fisherman, Traditional Owner
Vietnam veteran Bart has been Carroll’s audio mixer for decades, since their days on the frontline of Aboriginal activism in the tumultuous 70s and 80s. Bart is a Traditional Owner of the Narunga Nation.
Chief support dog
Mylo is a six-year old miniature dingo who doesn’t bark. A source of solace and companionship for all, Mylo was a treasured member of the team, who was only chased by a goanna once during the 10-week voyage.
This is the flight path that the Motorkite Dreaming team will journey.
