ENTREPRENEURS AND INNOVATORS GROW GREAT IDEAS IN REGIONAL COMMUNITIES

Thanks to an information revolution supercharged by a global pandemic, city dwellers – once hunkered down in capital cities, grinding their teeth and dreaming of escape - are moving to regional communities at a never-before-seen rate.

Now that we’re able to do just about anything from just about anywhere, regional areas are undergoing enormous transformation as an exciting combination of locals and newcomers embrace a future full of opportunity.

In the Orana region of central west NSW, two former big city lawyers are running a national legal enterprise from home, while inventing a brand new species of cow in their lunchtime. In stunning south-east Tasmania, a series of happy accidents leads one man to turn a disused rail tunnel into a mushroom farm. In the Top End, an innovative tour company provides a much-needed Indigenous perspective of culture and country.

And that’s just for starters! Each episode explores three stories within one region, to discover how entrepreneurs and innovators are creating new lifestyles for themselves and how their success has cascading effects in the community.

Movin’ to the Country hosts Craig Quartermaine, Halina Baczkowski and Kristy O’Brien head to a different region every week to tell the stories of everyday inspirational go-getters, determined to make a good living from their little patch of paradise. While it’s not all beer and peaches, despite struggles and setbacks, they’ve never looked back.

The perfect, uplifting half hour, Movin’ to the Country is the show we all need right now.
