About The Show

Australia’s toughest drivers hit the open road and reveal the adventure of trucking. The loads are bigger, the roads rougher and the action more intense than ever. This series, veteran trucker Steve Graham is heading to the beach, but it’s no vacation. The coast is a bone crunching 600km away at the very top of Australia. Steve must conquer the Gibb River road to get there and it’s notorious for eating trucks alive. Meanwhile in Port Augusta, father and son team John and Justin are sharing one last heavy haul trip before John’s retirement.
