Australi is a celebration of the truly beautiful and naturally mysterious Australian landscape & fauna – captured in a fantasy world.

We follow the story of Maloo, a young Aboriginal boy searching for his people and a place to call home. Set twenty years after the European, Chinese and Middle Eastern empires first set foot on Australi’s shores, Maloo must navigate a new world, full of unique and dangerous trials.

Maloo unwillingly becomes the hope of his people when an old prophecy is handed down. Now with not only the British empire after him, but also pirates, poachers and mercenaries, Maloo must find his inner spirit to fulfil the heavy burden placed upon him.

As the land becomes scarred by foreign war machines and the great animal spirits are captured as poachers prizes, Australi grows sick and its magical beauty fades. Ancient magic brews on all sides of the battle, with one boy and his odd band of destined heroes all that’s left to save it.
