Back Roads

Heather Ewart returns to the back roads of Australia to discover more remarkable country towns & the inspiring people who live in them. She meets communities whose resilience & good humour will inspire and uplift. #BackRoads

Back Roads - Innisfail to Normanton

Heather Ewart joins a big-hearted hairdresser and her 76-year-old apprentice on a ten day road-trip from their home town of Innisfail to Normanton in Queensland's Gulf country.

Back Roads - Mallacoota

Heather Ewart visits Mallacoota, a remote place at the end of the road on the far eastern tip of Victoria. Known for its natural beauty and wilderness, its isolation has bred a determination in the town to look after its own.

Back Roads - Thursday Island

Thursday Island is a laid-back paradise that most Australians have never visited and know little about. While its isolation can present problems, locals are rising to the challenge and are carving out a new future. #BackRoads

Back Roads - Katanning

The "ordinary" sheep and wheat town of Katanning in Western Australia has laid out the welcome mat and transformed itself, extraordinarily, holding some delightful surprises.
