Hubert Wilkins was truly the last -- and one of the greatest ever -- explorers. Born in South Australia, he spent much of his life outside the country, but always remained an Australia. He travelled through every continent, and was a pioneer of aviation. He survived crashes and disasters, firing squads and sabotage, living long enough to be honoured by kings, presidents and dictators. He was a frontline photographer in World War I and was twice decorated. He took the first ever film of battle, and took the first moving images from an aircraft. He was the first man to fly across the Arctic Ocean, the first to fly in the Antarctic, and the first to fly from America to Europe across the then unknown Arctic. In the 1930s he spent several years travelling in Western Queensland and the Northern Territory. In the later years of his life, he did work for the US military and intelligence and in 1958 was buried at sea at the North Pole by the US Navy.
