Well it has been a crazy three years! Three books in three years with the launch of the adaptation of my memoir A Sunburnt Childhood for young readers 150 page ‘MY OUTBACK CHILDHOOD’.
Toni’s childhood is not like other kids’. She is only five years old when her mum packs a small suitcase and the family over 300 kilometres on a scratchy dirt track to live at Killarney, a remote cattle station in the Northern Territory. Toni grows up in a rickety shed with six posts and no wall, among the cattle and horses, with the wild Territory climate and even wilder native animals around her.
Fascinating for city and country kids alike, this is the true story of an unconventional childhood filled with Outback adventures, stalking goanna’s, riding horses, helping in the cattle yards and sleeping under the stars.
