With so many won­der­ful places to visit, award-win­ning jour­nal­ist Heather Ewart (pic­tured) is helped out by guest pre­sen­ters Felic­ity Urquart, singer and pre­sen­ter of ABC Ra­dio’s Satur­day Night Coun­try, ABC News Chan­nel’s Joe O’Brien, and foodie and farmer Paul West.

Felic­ity, Joe and Paul will un­cover more re­silient com­mu­ni­ties de­fined by their strength and hu­mil­ity.

The peo­ple fea­tured are as awe-in­spir­ing as the land­scape that sur­rounds them.
