Field of Dreams

This week's Australian Story follows Mingoola local Julia Harpham's journey to save her town from the brink of closure. The peaceful rural community, located on the NSW/Queensland border, has recently experienced a decline in its population which has nearly resulted in the closure of the local school because of a lack of student numbers. A determined Harpham sets out to find new settlers in the hope of reviving Mingoola and meets Emmanuel Musoni, a refugee advocate who is trying to rebuild the lives of African refugees who have been resettled in western Sydney but are struggling to cope with city life. It is an inspiring story that has resulted in a win-win for both parties. ABC. Broadcast date 7/11/2016. Duration 27 mins.
