In this Episode we hear stories and interviews from more people in Coonamble NSW, Wailwan Country.

Coonamble is set along the picturesque Castlereagh River among some of Australia’s finest agricultural land. With a small population of around 3000 the entire Coonamble Shire stretches from the western slopes of the Warrumbungle Range and is host to an abundance of natural wonders including the Warrumbungle National Park, the Macquarie Marshes and Pilliga Forest. Coonamble is home to Australia’s biggest rodeo and campdraft and the town’s endearing Nickname Hall of Fame.
