WHEREVER there is a family farm, there are likely to be some bush kids lending a hand.
The Bush Kids Facebook page, which champions the efforts of country children working within agriculture, has now surpassed 40,000 followers online.
Each year some of the most captivating and well-liked images shared on the page are entered into a competition for the Bush Kids calendar, which raised money for the Royal Flying Doctors Service.
Organisers have set an ambitious target of raising $10,000 through sales, as 2018 will mark 90 years since the founding of the Royal Flying Doctors Service.
Proceeds will be donated to the West Australian branch of the RFDS next year.
The calender was put together from 400 entries, which all give a snapshot into the lives of bush kids Australia wide.
