Andrew Denton goes on the road to the north-west Victorian town of Rainbow, Mount Isa and Kununurra to meet the locals. In Rainbow, Denton explores what lies beneath the surface of this wheat and sheep based town. In the mining town of Mount Isa Andrew meets three of its locals: the eccentric Kathy Swift; Glynn Johnston, the Friendly Mauler; and Boyd Curran who details his passionate work with Aboriginal youths. In Kununurra, Denton meets some very special dwellers. This East Kimberley oasis is home to bull riders, diamond traders, and cattle wranglers (to name a few) and they all share their unique stories about rural life.
