From a tiny house overlooking Tiger Head Bay in Tasmania, to a massive steel mansion high on a hill in bushranger country, Victoria, Grand Designs Australia – Series 8 captures the extremes of Australia’s grand landscapes, its larrakin spirit, and its love of remarkable architecture.

From the genius inventor who spends five tortuous years trialling his revolutionary building system, to the reclusive but hilarious handyman building a bizarre underground hideout in the suburbs, there’s no shortage of characters and jaw dropping projects.

And it’s renowned architect and host Peter Maddison’s job to travel thousands of kilometres across the country – from Queensland to South Australia, Victoria, Tasmania and the ACT – in a bid to understand, assist and marvel at the remarkable efforts of the truly obsessed.
