These people are very different, but they have much in common. They’re the salt of the outback, but they’re not from long ago and far away. You can rub shoulders with them here and now. They’re our outback legends. Enjoy these armchair travels and life stories as Evan McHugh, author of Outback Heroes catches up with some of the most remarkable and inspiring characters our country has to offer. From unsung heroes and heroines such as ‘mother of the Barkly’ Bernadette Burke, member of one of the world’s biggest women’s networks, to nurse June Andrew who went outback for five years and ended up staying a lifetime. You may not have heard of some of these people but you’ll be enriched by meeting them now.
