    Kimberley cattle vet Dave Morrell grew up on stations in the desert country between Broome and Kununurra.

    GUITAR HERO - Robbo busting some tunes around the campfire for us.

    Scotty was having a yarn with Robbo around the campfire, he mentioned that he used to play guitar and was actually pretty good. Lucky Scotty travels with a guitar and was able to see the master craftsman in action. Hidden talents like this one are a real treat out bush. We hope you enjoy.

    WET SEASON ISOLATION with Shane’o. What does over 6 months solo (with bulk deadly animals) go like?

    WET SEASON ISOLATION with Shane’o. What does over 6 months solo (with bulk deadly animals) go like?

    Before I rocked up, Shane’o had spent 6 months and 3 weeks caretaking the Mt Hart Wilderness Lodge in the King Leopold Ranges on the Gibb River Road on his own. So much happens in a Kimberley Wet season of isolation. The place is alive! Be sure to stick this one out to the end, it’s one of Scotty’s favourites in the Bush Yarns series so far. We hope you enjoy!

    CROC ATTACK - Toddy gets munched by a hungry Croc. Heads up - Colourful Language used)

    When Toddy went for an arvo fish for some Barra he never expected to spend nearly 30 mins in the mouth of a hungry croc. 2 legs and an index finger were on the menu for “Kev” the Croc. Toddy wanted a special mention that the Governor General awarded Kev Bevan and Raelene Motton bravery awards for their assistance in his rescue. I hope you enjoy.

    SNAKE BITE - Kimberley Legend Bruce Ellison’s Lethal Brown Snake hit by Host Scotty Connell

    Worst case scenario. Picture this - You’re As “Faraway” from civilisation as you can get in Australia, it’s the end of a long day in the hot sun and BOOM a deadly brown snake bites hard with full intention of harm. This happened to one of my greatest mentors/friends and we had a mission on our hands to sort this one out. Hope you enjoy!

    KIMBERLEY FARMING - Agriculture vetaran Fritz Bolten talks shop.

    Imagine having Kelly Slater arrive at the door to check out ya place and you’ve got no idea who he is.. The Kimberley breeds characters like Fritz who are ‘salt of the earth’ type humans. His 39 years of farming the Kimberley “soil” has brought about all sorts of highs and lows. We hope you enjoy the insight. Cheers
