‘Photography helped me view the bush differently. The flat, dry, barren landscape I first saw was replaced with a kaleidoscope of colour, magnificent light and texture from red dirt to sapphire skies — long roads, small towns and incredible people.’ Paula Heelan

From the high plains to the bush, heart-warming stories and stunning photography of our wide brown land, and the people and animals who live there

An award-winning photographer, Paula Heelan captures the beauty, drama and romance of the outback in this stunning book, as she takes a look at what life is like for those who live and work in remote communities and stations. From agricultural shows to rodeos, campdrafting to country races, livestock to life in the wet, more than 200 photographs, anecdotes and stories capture the joys, trials and tribulations of everyday life as well as the grandeur and unforgiving nature of the Australia landscape.

Paula lives on a station in Queensland. She brings her deep understanding of life in a remote community to this investigation of the importance of the land, the animals and people who inhabit it.

A great photographic accomplishment.


Just loved reading, viewing this beautiful book on outback Australia 🇦🇺

Queensland Australia


Why use the same name?


Why has the author used the same title as the 2011 best seller? Hardly makes sense that it can't stand alone?
