Australia is a vast land and some workers must travel thousands of miles to do their job. These people
have become known as the ‘Fly In, Fly Out’ workers, with most staying on-site for weeks at a time, then flying back to their families and loved ones to spend quality time at home.
Written by award-winning author Sally Murphy, this book gives us an insight into one family with a
Fly In, Fly Out Dad set against a backdrop of the Western Australian mining region.
