The ultimate collection of the seminal Aussie battler.
Battler: Battler O’Brien has been a battler all his life – riding the rodeo circuit and droving sheep with his missus on the far west stock route to survive. But with four little jackaroos and jillaroos on the ground and another bun in the oven, Battler saw that the only chance for his family lay with the “Bundaroo” land ballot. He was prepared to do almost anything to win...
Battler’s Block: All the hilarious things that happen when the irrepressible larrikin bushie and his wild and woolly brood move onto their 50,000 acre “block” way out in the back country. Chaos, calamity, colossal cock-ups, crazy scrub-happy characters, crooked cockies and classic, politically-incorrect conversations ... and a good chuckle or three every minute.
Battler Goes to the Gold Coast: Battler O’Brien, from way out back of Bourke, a larikin sheep cocky, gets a vacation when his missus wins a holiday on the Gold Coast. It’s going to be one heck of a trip – the kids have never seen the sea, Battler has never seen the brief-as-brief bikinis and the topless sheilas ... they’re all just about go completely woomba!
