Living the Aussie dream
HAVE you migrated to Australia
in the last 10 years? Do you think
you have a story to tell?
Then you could very well star in
the ABC’s Dream Australia televi-
sion series soon to be flmed in the
District Council of Mallala.
The ABC international channel
Australia Network (AN), which
broadcasts into more than 44 coun-
tries in theAsia, India sub-continen-
tal and the South Pacifc regions, has
commissioned the series.
Regional Development Austral-
ia, Barossa network, has part-funded
the project in conjunction with the
District Council of Mallala.
Exploring the realities for hun-
dreds of thousands of people who
move to Australia each year, the
independently produced seven-
episode series captures real human-
interest stories and delves into the
differences in culture, language,
lifestyle and geography for those
who have decided to start a new life
Dream Australia producer, Paul
Butler, said the show was intent
on promoting regional South Aus-
tralia and was currently flming in
the South East of the state, with a

Mr Butler said Dream Australia
would showcase the region to a
global audience and encouraged all
interested migrants to apply.
“What we’re looking for is stories
from families who have migrated
to Australia and into the district,"
“We’ll be looking at the journey’s
ups and downs, and highlighting that
while these are the opportunities,
these are also the challenges that
families go through."
Mr Butler said well-researched
stories gave a true picture of migrant
families, covering why they left their
home country, family and friends,
and birth culture for Australia.
"We explore their new commu-
nity, their work, studies, change in
lifestyle and much more," he said.
"The key to each story will be
the range of strong human interest
components (and) it is imperative
that the stories have strong human
interest features which will capture
the imagination of an international
Each story will run in a for-
mat similar to the ABC’s popular
Australian Story program, where a
presenter will set the scene with a
brief introduction of overlay foot-
age showing the audience where in
Australia the family has moved to.
The family will then tell their
personal story about their journey
without any narration from the
Mr Butler said Dream Australia
was also currently designing an
interactive website to give viewers
more access to information about the
region including what the housing
looks like, business opportunities,
and job opportunities, allowing them
a greater connection to the story and
providing an opportunity for people
to engage with what they have seen.

Rodney, of Bowral, NSW after they
were announced joint winners of
the Global Youth Ag Summit es-
say competition while at a Future
Farmers Network’s (FFN) Youth
Agricultural Central conference in
Canberra last week.
From an entry pool of 34 applica-

in Canada in August, where they
will address issues affecting the
agriculture industry today, with a
key focus on global food security.
Corbin, a sixth generation hay
and grain farmer, is actively in-
volved in the local Ag Bureau.
"Our agronomist said I should
apply for it, so I did. I had
a choice of writing a 2000
word essay, or making
a seven minute video. I
chose the essay," he said.
"It had to be based on
the premise that in the
year 2050, there will be
nine billion people in the
world, and we had to use
examples of how, in our
area, we would feed them.
“There will be 120
people from around the
world, aged between 18-
25 attending the summit.
“I’m excited to be going to
Canada, and looking forward to
meeting young people, all with fresh
ideas,” Corbin said.
"There will be tours and high
profle guest speakers, so I’m sure
we’ll be bringing new ideas and
information home.” Bayer CropSci-
