Tanya Heaslip Talk – Life on a cattle station
August 24, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Author Tanya Heaslip will share her stories about growing up on a remote outback cattle station during the 1960s and 1970s. Working as a young girl in the stock camp, mustering cattle in the heat and dust, being educated through Correspondence School and Alice Springs School of the Air, contacting the outside world through the Royal Flying Doctor’s Service’s two-way radio, Tanya’s upbringing taught her resilience and creativity.
With snippets of stories, and with the floor open for questions and answers, this is a rare opportunity to gain insight into exactly what station life was like for a girl during this particular era in Central Australia.
Entry to the Courtyard talk is free.
