Country Town Rescue

Country Town Rescue


Country Town Rescue is a 6 x 30 mins Observational Documentary. It is currently in production for the ABC.

Trundle, a classic country town in Central Western NSW with a population of just 485 people, has recently lost its footy team, racetrack, ambo service and bank. But the small community has come together with an ingeniously simple plan to save their town - they’re offering city slickers Australia wide the chance to move to Trundle and rent abandoned Farmhouses for just $1 a week.

Country Town Rescue follows the journey of this move, watching as new life is breathed into the town and documenting how the newcomers build lives and friendships in rural Australia.
