Outback Stories (COSHA)
Date & Time

His most recent project is a series of twelve films celebrating the spirit of the Outback as told through stories, songs, recitations and archival films and photographs. He will talk about some of his favourite Outback characters
The series features cranky bush cooks, shearers out on the spree, drovers leading their cattle overland, Cobb & Co coaches creaking their way across country and also the story of Sidney Kidman, Australia’s ‘cattle king’.
