Flush with cash from their previous adventure, Randy and Piho head to Australia to catch up with geek-girl Tammy, but they're soon immersed in trouble, or to be more precise: flood-water!
And that's how Randy discovers the most amazing fossil ever found in Australia.
He's busting to share it with budding paleontologist Tammy, but he also has the chance to sell it for a cool million to the guy from the Berlin Museum, so the secret is kept until the deal is done. But of course it all turns to kanga-poo as soon as they discover that "Fossie" has already been stolen!
Teaming up with annoying tech-nerd Winton and local girl Nikki, Tammy and the boys embark on a crazy car-chase towards a classic showdown with the thief & his henchmen (& the police & the Aus and NZ cricket teams & a Very Large Cake). The chaos quickly escalates!
