Demolition Down Under follows highly skilled crews as they tackle everything from high rise apartments and sunken wharves, to bizarre structures and massive warehouses – working to punishing deadlines, tight budgets and cramped locations. Season two of the observational documentary will feature teams overcoming challenging projects, including a multimillion-dollar Ascot mansion and a 14-meter sunken vessel off the coast of Fraser Island.
Aussie Mega Mechanics showcases the skills of some of the best mechanics, fitters, and engineers as they work on the biggest machines that drive Australia’s multibillion-dollar industries. The new season will continue to spotlight the locals who navigate ongoing issues to keep these expansive machines operational, often under harsh Australian conditions.
