Season 1
The outback and cattle station life can be hard and unforgiving. And for one woman it offered a life of adventure and opportunity. But don't even think about calling her just manager's wife.
He's a third-generation shearer who loves the industry. He's also 26, employs more than 40 staff, and oversees the shearing of hundreds of thousands of sheep a year. He also helps troubled people find purpose and meaning.
From sheep breeder to shearer, grain trader to truck driver. She was raised to be a wife and mother. Instead, this woman has set up more businesses and tackled more jobs than many people do in a lifetime.
Many people have two jobs, but this is one of the more unusual. Meet the gun shearer who became a doctor, but still returns to the family sheep station for shearing.
