Hands that Created Our Heritage

A journey to find the last of an era...

BOOK RELEASE and LAUNCH - late September, 2019

My three-year journey of discovery around Australia in Bugsy, my second-hand campervan.
Unearthing stories of a fascinating collection of people who helped carve the foundation of modern Australia with their bare hands.

All I knew was that I wanted to hear the stories of their lives. Having no clue how, where the stories would lead or what they would reveal.

This beautiful, brutal land forced ordinary people to do extraordinary things to survive, create an existence and collectively, build a nation.

At times it made me wonder why anyone would want to create an existence in parts of this unforgiving land.

"One day I woke and understood the why....."

“Unknowingly, I was also pushed into a personal journey. I had changed – in ways I didn’t expect. "
