Bush lives: bush futures

Our rural heritage is suffering: the effects of El Nino, feral plagues, the globalisation of the economy, falling wool prices and years of drought are changing the very nature of land and its use.

This evocative exhibition highlighted the triumphant stories of eight remarkable NSW families who have found innovative and sustainable solutions for their land and their heritage properties despite it all!
