Australian Womens Weekly Magazine

Landscape and interiors feature for Australian Womens Weekly Magazine on the battle to save Australian poet Dorothea Mackellar’s family property ‘Kurrumbede’ from a mining giant.

Situated just north of Gunnedah, on the fertile plains of the Namoi River, New South Wales.

This property was the heart of her iconic poem ‘My Country’ and is Australia’s most famous poem and the photographs reflect the poems strong visuals.

 “I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains”.
