Next Episode of Back Roads is
Back Roads transports audiences to some of the nation's most remote and inspiring communities that highlight rural Australia's trademark grit, generosity, humour and innovation. Each week award-winning ABC journalist, Heather Ewart, who grew up on a sheep and wheat farm in Victoria, uncovers corners of Australia where misfortune has brought some to their knees, but imagination, faith and fun has lifted them back up.
Back Roads travels to Marble Bar, known as the hottest place in Australia. Singer-songwriter and ABC Radio's Saturday Night Country presenter Felicity Urquhart takes the wheel as we visit red-dirt country in the Pilbara, WA.
Heather Ewart visits The Coorong, an area spanning 130kms of South Australian coastline. It's a stunning mosaic of wild ocean beaches, lagoons and wetlands, but in many ways it's become the forgotten end of the Murray River.
ABC's Joe O'Brien visits the remote Northern Territory community of Finke, traditionally known as Aputula and famous for the Finke Desert Race, a 460 kilometre off-road endurance rally, one of the toughest in the world.
Heather Ewart visits the small town of Windorah in Queensland's Channel country between Longreach and Birdsville. Many people live there because they love the splendid isolation, but it comes with a price. (Season Final)
