The Inland Sea: An Australian Odyssey is a travel series chronicling an Australian road trip. In ten weeks, Norwegian journalist Steinar Ellingsen, along visual artist Dida Sundet, camera man Ben Hall and Best Boy Eirik Laugerud traveled 16,000 kms through the land Down Under. The impetus for the trip was to look for intentional communities in remote, rural and suburban Australia. Beyond that, their mission was simple: to pick up stories on the go, by word of mouth or by 'accident', as the quartet discovered the outback for the first time.

Dive into The Inland Sea - Ep. 1
Join Norwegian journalist Steinar Ellingsen and his crew as they set out to take on Australia for the first time. The crew consisted of a visual artist, a cameraman and a helpful, albeit broke, assistant. Their Australian Odyssey started in Melbourne and finished in the same place ten weeks later, after trekking 16,000 kilometers via Adelaide, Uluru (Ayers Rock), Alice Springs, Darwin, Broome, Perth and everywhere in between. Along the way they visit ecovillages, spot wildlife, interview seemingly random people with great stories to tell, search for UFOs, and they even have a sit-down with royalty.
