    Beyond Strange Lands is an action-packed and fantastical multi-cast audio drama that journeys across the Australian outback.

    In 1982, the famous paranormal expert Grant Peters went missing while filming his TV show Legendary Australia. His wife Melissa was never able to find him. When Melissa herself disappears nearly forty years later, her daughter Fiona and grandson Ethan trace her to the small outback town of Boulia. There they discover a collection of old audio tapes that Melissa left behind: a set of clues they must follow if they're to solve this mystery in time. Insidious forces will stop at nothing to destroy them, and an impossibly ancient menace lurks deep beneath the ground, waiting for the chance to strike....

Loved it

An amazing story that kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The way they did it felt like being there instead of hearing about it, very immersive!
The only issue I had was during the beginning part of episode 8. I was out mowing so I had my headphones turned up loud cause of the mower an there was a sound effect that hurt my ears a little.
I would definitely like to hear more of their stuff, they remind me of "Soundbooth Theater" who is one of my favorite narrators. BTW those sound echoes that other reviewer mentioned are way cool!!! More please

Sound is terrible not artsy

So I want to say that I do enjoy the stories. I think they're interesting. But whatever you're doing with the sound echoes is just horrendous. It's not artistic.

Aliens?

This was an interesting listen, first I thought it was going to be about ghost then aliens and then it went to this whole thing.

I somewhat enjoyed it but stories like this I never really have been a fan of. Its this a creature from another world invading. And then they did beat it but not really.

The performance was good, I listen to this in my ear which is recommended. The story was also good but just not what I like, and at times it felt like it was to much. I couldn't seperate my bias on stories like this from the overall story. I did give it an overall 3 because I did hear all of it and a 5 in performance and story. So I didn't like the subject matter but it was well performed and the story was ok.

Didn't finish

With the differences and random audio changes, I could not get through this book. One character would sound like the mic was on the other side of the room while the character they were speaking to was loud and clear. At times there was some kind of echoing. The sound quality kept pulling me from the story. I kept having to turn the volume up and down. I understand recording in different studios but this was madness. I stopped at Episode 4 and I still can't tell you what's going on.
