Outback Airstrip

by Nina Joan


Imagine the quickest way of your family to get help was by plane! The family who live on this property are over an hour an a half drive away from their closest neighbour and its faster to radio for a plane than to drive for help.
The photograph of the family’s own airstrip and surrounding property doesn’t quite show the expanse of this country. As far as you can see in this picture all of the land is the family’s own property. How truly amazing? When I visited this family, I came back to life near the city with a renewed respect for the farmers of Australia. It must be difficult to live in circumstances such as this but I’m sure living in such beautiful country makes it worthwhile.
