Australia: The Wild Top End 3D is a 45 minute family-friendly nature film opening exclusively at IMAX Melbourne on September 12, screening daily throughout the spring school holidays.

The film’s director Nick Robinson spent 100 days camping in far northern Australia, lost  an $80,000 camera to a hungry crocodile and almost swallowed a green tree frog in the making of this epic documentary.
