Back Roads transports audiences to some of the nation’s most remote and inspiring communities that highlight rural Australia’s trademark grit, generosity, humour and innovation. Heather Ewart, who grew up on a sheep and wheat farm in Victoria, uncovers corners of Australia where misfortune has brought some to their knees, but imagination, faith and fun has lifted them back up. Back Roads sees Heather Ewart return to the bush uncovering corners of Australia where misfortune has brought some to their knees, but imagination, faith and fun has lifted them back up.

Heather Ewart heads to the Pilbara region of Western Australia to meet some of the remarkable locals who are driving change as the mining boom ends. There's also plenty of 'girl power' to be found out in this harsh landscape.
