Chris Hammer, Kathryn Hind and Don Watson moderated by Lucy Barbour
There is a complex ambiguity in the role that the bush plays in our collective imagination. The bush can be for some a hostile, fearful, lawless and harsh environment. But what do we mean by “the bush” and how has it shaped us? A unique trio of Australian writers, Don Watson The Bush, Chris Hammer Scrublands and Kathryn Hind Hitch, explore the power of the bush - from popular rural noir to a revelatory journey deep into the heart of our national character. ABC journalist and rural specialist Lucy Barbour moderates the discussion.
