Abstract:

Toni is only 9 years old when her mum packs a small suitcase and drives the family over 300 kilometres on a scratchy dirt track to live at Killarney, a remote cattle station in the Northern Territory. Home is a shack that has no electricity or running water, no telephones, radio or television. But the 2819 square kilometres of bush that is Killarney Station is her playground. Toni grows up among the cattle and horses, with the wild Territory climate and even wilder native animals around her. She has adventures with Old Dora and Daisy, the Aboriginal women who help raise her and her brothers and sisters. They teach her about bush tucker and tell her stories of debil debils. My Outback Childhood is the story of Toni's unconventional upbringing on Killarney - stalking goannas, helping in the cattle yards, sleeping under the stars and riding horses. Young readers will be captivated by this true story of a childhood filled with Outback adventures.
