This winter, the National Geographic LIVE! series returns to Pacific shores to enchant us for a third season with their incredible footage and thought-provoking explorations.
Photographers and filmmakers David Doubilet and Bryan Smith will take to the stage in both Australia and New Zealand for the National Geographic LIVE! series in partnership with master sponsors Adventure World.
The series brings together the gripping footage and inspiring stories of National Geographic's real life adventurers, taking viewers on a journey to the amazing places they've been to share what they've learned about the world around us. All presentations are lavishly illustrated, first-hand presentations by people who travel the world to capture the powerful stories and images you've seen on the National Geographic Channel and in the National Geographic magazine.
The series returns to Sydney, Melbourne, and Auckland — and for the first time will also be showcasing in Perth, Wellington, Wollongong, and Singapore! From images of ethereal secret worlds deep below the water's surface, to capturing nail-biting video footage of athletes pushing the limits of human possibility, David Doubilet and Bryan Smith will captivate audiences with their incredible global adventures and discoveries.
