Desert Collectors is an Australian reality television show set in Western Australia, which is a very sparsely populated area and consists mostly of desert. At the same time, it is one of the world's largest gold and nickel mining areas. As a result of this combination of extremes, the area has become home to many unique and eccentric groups and individuals. The series follows Australian television producer and director as he travels through the rugged region of Western Australia, with the spectacular outback scenery rich in history and heritage an ever-present feature of the production. The viewers follow him as he goes searching for unique treasures, while at the same time meeting the local people who spend their lives collecting those same treasures.
