Beyond the steady diet of drought, debt and despair about the bush in our media, something exciting is happening, something few seem to have noticed. It's a new vision for the future being created by young rural Australians. Some tackle national issues. Others impact at grassroots level. All give hope for the future.Reinventing the Bush are dynamic people who, from the top End to the tasmanian highlands, from the rugged Kimberley to the struggling Murray, are reinventing possibilities for the bush. Every story gives insight into people, places and issues which affect the lives of Australians today. together they dispel the tired image of rural youth as preoccupied with beer, utes, and the latest Bachelors & Spinsters Ball. the stories build a tapestry of experience, from taking on testing leadership roles and saving our rivers, to tackling Aboriginal health and building a Future Farmers Network.
