There has been a chronic failure by governments to spend money on infrastructure to  develop our rural region infrastructure.

Downgrading, not developing, they fail to adopt smarter transport between our regional cities and towns.   

Development remains tilted to metropolitan areas where land prices long over-valued, so cost of doing anything is over-priced.    

Regional and Rural communities need campaign for better, more sympathetic consideration of their developments.

Only a tiny population inhabited the entire world when this was the way of life of the first Aborigines and indeed of all our ancestors who lived in that epoch. Somehow this fact is not readily accepted. We can outline to any audience the virtues of this lifestyle, but something additional must be told: that fewer than a couple out of every 100 listening could survive today – they could not be fed and clothed – if that way of life had prevailed. It had to end, and it ended tragically and at times ruthlessly."
