How would you spend one day in paradise?
Well, if you’re Gulliver Page from the GoPro team you might climb out of a chopper and skydive onto a cay on the Great Barrier Reef dressed in full snorkelling gear. Or kayak down waterfalls in the 135 million-year-old Daintree Rainforest. Whatever floats your boat.
Last month we unleashed 20 of Australia’s best filmmakers in the tropical northern corner of our state to capture the spirit of adventure using only GoPro cameras and a whole lot of cojones.
The cast – including a stunt man, a former taxi driver, and a shark cowboy known for inventing a method to lasso sharks – well and truly put everything on the line to conquer the $75,000 prize up for grabs.
