Naturalist and broadcaster Sir David Attenborough — the man behind that iguana video — is coming to Brisbane.

The entire world has lost its mind this week for a clip from Attenborough’s new series, Planet Earth II, that’s being hailed as the greatest and most cinematic scene ever filmed for a nature documentary.


Now, the man himself is coming down under.

The father of the modern nature documentary, Attenborough has devoted his life to celebrating and preserving wildlife, and he’s not slowing with age.

The advancement of his age has done little to slow the intrepid Attenborough, who returns in February to Australia and New Zealand to appear with Ray Martin for a limited number of live shows.

He’ll join Ray Martin on stage for Sir David Attenborough – A Quest for Life, a live show that will cover a career dedicated to the natural world, the changes he has witnessed since first filming Zoo Quest in the 1950s, and the environmental challenges the natural world now faces.

Sir David Attenborough will appear at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on Saturday 4 February; tickets will go on sale at 9am on Monday 21 November through Ticketek.
