Bullo River Station, outback home of the famous Henderson women. But one of those women is no longer welcome there, even though her heart yearns for the place. This is her story. The Bonnie Henderson Story.
The moment Bonnie Henderson landed at Bullo River Station her life changed forever. No more pretty white dresses and clean socks, which her mother Sara had once insisted upon; here Bonnie could run wild and free.
Constantly challenged by her difficult but adored father, Bonnie conquered her fear of horses to become a fine horsewoman; rode rough-shod over any barriers to become a respected head-stockman and drag Bullo out of crippling debt; and overcame her terror of flying to become a national aerobatics champion...But Bonnie could never overcome the gap between her and her aloof mother.
Unafraid to face the bitter truth behind the much-publicised rift between Bonnie and Sara, the gut-wrenching court cases that pitched mother against daughter, 'Her Father's Daughter' is, in the end, a celebration of a remarkable bushwoman, of her abiding love for her father, and her passion for Bullo River Station.
