This mostly solo trip started in Perth Scotland,through 19 countries across Europe, Asia and finishing in Perth Australia. It took approximately 4 and a half months to cover the 28,800 km. This 6 Part TV series tells the story of that adventure.

Perth to Perth TV SeriesSteven Kirk a long time resident in Perth reaches middle age and decides that the world has more to offer the keen motorcyclist. Inspired by pioneers who first arrived on Australian shores centuriesearlier, Steven tried to recapture some of that excitement by travelling on his own quest from theoriginal Perth in Scotland. Hoping to feel similar experiences of the long journey by land, taking him through the Middle East and across the top end of Australia before arriving home in Perth.

The DVD initially aimed at motorcyclists has seen interest from the general public in looking at the different cultures and countries travelled through. Described as gritty and truthful, perhaps with some rough edges but with an interesting story of an ordinary bloke on an extraordinary journey.

The DVD is available in Australia and UK via website purchase www.perthtoperth.com and selected motorcycle shops in Australia. 

What started out as a hobby to record the trip has turned into an epic TV series, aimed primarily to inspire others, now supporting charities with the benefit of sales worldwide. In UK all profits go to Help for Heroes. Help for Heroes give practical, direct support to our current wounded

"Excellent. The presentation was superb. Top Bloke"

"I hope you enjoyed the trip as much as I enjoyed watching it. Great adventure....some tense moments there in Pakistan"

“Absolutely brilliant, great achievement”
