Central Australia in 2031

Central Australia is part of the country that I think we could benefit from a much closer understanding. Its future will say a lot about the type of country that Australians call home in 2031.

Australia and Southeast Asia in 2031

In my conversation with Ben Bland, Director of the Lowy Institute's Southeast Asia Project,  we look at how Australia is positioning itself in Southeast Asia, what this means in terms of foreign relations and the big question for this episode: how will Australia engage with South East Asia in 2031?

A healthy Australia in 2031

My guests on this first edition of ‘Imagining Australia’ paint a picture of a more open country where discussions about mental health are normalised, where ‘treatment’ is community minded and those who are most vulnerable receive coordinated care. 

Karumba

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.

Charlie Chen and Walgett

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. It’s a story of a desire to push what migrating to Australia could offer, incredible ingenuity and how he fell in love with Walgett. Have a listen!

Lismore

I couldn’t resist the opportunity to ask people whether they were feeling optimistic or pessimistic about where Australia finds itself in these challenging global times. The answer is a fascinating blend of apprehensiveness and gratefulness.

Bernard Rooney and Northern NSW

Bernard is someone who has definitely embraced life in Northern New South Wales. He sat down with me on this episode of re:location to talk about working on one of the largest coffee farms in Australia, how he ended up in Nimbin and the incredible nature that defines this patch of the world.
