Actor and part-time adventurer Shuang Hu goes Beyond the Reef in this giant screen adventure of a lifetime.
Filmed across far north Queensland in late 2021, this visually stunning feature documentary is aimed at a family audience and explores one of the planet's most unique and beautiful locations.
Raised in Townsville, Queensland, but currently based in Los Angeles, Shuang Hu (The Family Law, Ronny Chieng: International Student) has built a huge following on social media as @theoneshu, with over 4.5 million YouTube subscribers and 4.3 million followers on Tik Tok. In Beyond the Reef, Shuang returns to her home state to showcase the wonders of far north Queensland to young audiences, experiencing many new adventures for the very first time.
Shuang's journey starts with one of the oldest and most beautiful ecological habitats in the world - The Great Barrier Reef. Her scuba training along the outer edge of the reef sees her nerves give way to amazement, as the colour and energy of the underwater world unfolds before her. Shuang's adventure continues inland where she explores the oldest rainforest in the world - the Daintree.
From a boat ride down a crocodile-infested river, swimming under ancient waterfalls to rafting down the wild Barron Gorge rapids, the adventure becomes action-packed before calming down to a feast of local culinary delights. Travelling by land, air and sea, Shuang discovers the area's history, its secrets, and humanity's relationship with the region.
