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.
Heather Ewart visits Hermannsburg (known as Ntaria in Western Arrarnta language), the stunning birthplace of Albert Namatjira. This Northern Territory town is nurturing both culture & creativity in its young people.
Heather Ewart visits White Cliffs, a tiny outback NSW town known for opal mining & underground dugouts, but the community is also full of colourful surprises.
This week Heather Ewart discovers the seaside hamlet of Cygnet in southern Tasmania's Huon Valley is undergoing some big changes with runaways from the city flooding in to town.
This week Heather visits Harrow, a creative community that took to heart the mantra "reinvent or perish" and found unique ways to bring new people and fresh ideas into the town.
Heather heads to Corryong, Victoria. A bucket-load of beauty and a fascinating history haven't been enough to cement the town's success. But that's changing, with some of Corryong's young people starting to move back.
