Outback Truck­ers is back

Big Rigs - - NEWS -

THIS vast is­land con­ti­nent is home to some of the hard­est places to reach on Earth.

But for the mega trucks that keep the coun­try mov­ing, get­ting there is just an­other day at the of­fice.

Longer than a jet liner and heav­ier than a tank, they can run 24/7, pulling any­thing from houses to ham­burg­ers.

Be­hind the wheel, some of the best and tough­est drivers in the world.

Their motto? Any­thing. Any time. Any­where.

That’s right, your favourite re­al­ity tele­vi­sion show, Outback Truck­ers ,is back on the air for a sixth sea­son.

The show airs on 7mate on Tues­days at 8.30pm and is also avail­able to stream on 7Plus, Chan­nel Seven’s TV catch-up view­ing app.

This sea­son, you’re in for a treat.

Early episodes of the sea­son fol­low mar­ried cou­ple Nick and Jo, who risk one fi­nal sup­ply run as the wet sea­son looms.

Good Samar­i­tan trucker Craig Porter and son Dakota make a 3000km mercy dash to de­liver hay to drought-hit Queens­land sta­tions, while vet­eran Yogi ques­tions his fu­ture in the busi­ness af­ter a run-in with au­thor­i­ties.

This sea­son Outback Truck­ers also catches up with outback truck­ing leg­end Steve Gra­hame and his faith­ful ca­nine com­pan­ion, Bella, when they take the world’s long­est short­cut from Alice Springs to Perth to de­liver a mon­ster load.

Then we check in with vet­eran trucker Sludge, who has flooded roads to bat­tle as he races to de­liver fuel to farm­ers in time for har­vest.
