Movin’ to the Country celebrates the entrepreneurs, innovators and dreamers who are transforming the look and feel of Regional Australia.
Join hosts Craig Quartermaine, Halina Baczkowski and Kristy O’Brien as they head off to a different region every week to tell the stories of folk looking to make a good living from their little patch of paradise.
This week, Movin’ to the Country heads to northern Tasmania.
Kristy O’Brien meets a couple of old university mates who saw the potential for harvesting timber from a drowned forest. Skilled woodworkers then transform the recovered lumber into exquisite furniture.
Halina Baczkowski gets her wheels on in Derby with a young couple who made their hobby their livelihood, joining a luxury mountain biking adventure, utilising the best of local Tassie produce.
Then in Launceston, Craig Quartermaine drops in on some young entrepreneurs making the ancient Chinese spirit baijiu – the best-selling drink you’ve never heard of.
