  • Disillusioned with her life in the UK, author Deb Hunt made a life­altering decision when she moved to Australia. She landed a job as a marketing assistant with the Royal Flying Doctor Service, which saw this city girl moving to the remote NSW mining town of Broken Hill. She spent five years working for the RFDS and in that time met the love of her life ― and many amazing outback families. Both inspired her writing. Her funny warm and light­hearted memoir, Love in the Outback, chronicles her time in rural Australia and finally meeting Mr Right. Australian Farming Families explores the human aspects of life on the land and Deb met many of these families through her connection with the RFDS.
    Deb talks with Ian Campbell about the important role the RFDS plays on outback life. Not only in saving lives in the medical sense but in providing a communication bridge to the rest of the country.
