This edition of re:location is about life in Karumba. This is a town with a real sense of ease and calm, and where nature rules. Nestled in the south east pocket of the Gulf of Carpentaria, I talk with a few of Karumba's 500 locals about what makes town tick, barramundi and life alongside crocodiles.
At times, it’s hard to focus in a city like Alice Springs. There is a strong sense of people having deeply contrasting experiences – and there is a huge economic gap between the first nations and white communities. But running against the stereotype and reputation, my first impression of Alice was as an upbeat kind of place, and that it’s incredibly welcoming. Have a listen!

It was super talking with Timmy D on the third and final part of this series on Walgett. I was grateful for how he shared his special connection with town and the surrounding area, how it stems from his love of family, and their long connection with this part of Australia. Have a listen!
On part two of this edition of re:location, I chat with Charlie Chen a local businessman and entrepreneur who’s originally from China. Charlie has an incredible story.
