The Cattle Empire

“The Outback” is a colloquial name for the vast desert region that comprises most of Australia’s interior. It describes the emptiness, remoteness, and the huge distances of inland Australia. In fact, nothing says ‘Australia’ quite like our Outback. And you can find a little of the Outback in every state of mainland Australia. The open spaces that seem to stretch on forever tell the story of the exploration and development of our red-brown land, and reflect Australia’s pioneering spirit and unique identity. And nowhere is this more evident than in the live-stock industry, especially on the vast cattle stations that cover much of the Outback.

In this episode we head to remote north-western Australia where dreams have always been big. While success in the Kimberley has often been challenging, that hasn’t discouraged the young Indigenous stockmen and traditional owners who now hold the Roebuck Plains Station lease. Despite challenges they have built a successful cattle operation with a herd of over 20,000 animals in Western Australia. Today we’re going to consider the ultimate Cattle Empire and discover how it affects each of us.
