'The Bushies' offers a rare glimpse of country Australia through stories of real Australians - both ordinary and extraordinary.
'The Uteman', Allan M Nixon, travelled far and wide to find this dinkum cross-section of bush identities. One of them, a missing person for nearly three decades, was reunited with his family as a result and in 2004 was featured on the ABC's television program Australian Story.
A banjo maker, a modern gold miner, a legendary artist and treehouse-dweller. And many more . . . Individual, irrepressible and usually irreverent, they are The Bushies.
