This is a true story of how Bulleringa Station, in far Northwestern Queensland, evolved from a
bush block to a cattle station of commercial breeding stock. Then, in 1992, it was purchased by
the Queensland Government National Parks of Australia. It is now considered a natural reserve
with outstanding flora and fauna.
This narrative is a collaboration between Isla Costa and Glady Borgert and depicts the
extraordinary experiences and challenging situations that made up everyday life while growing
up with family and friends at Bulleringa Station in the far reaches of Outback Australia.
At times, there is the raw brutality of everyday life, and then, the contrast of Nature’s
beauty. Yet, readers are certain to enjoy this compelling narrative that, although sometimes
confronting, was typical of that era as this remarkable pioneering family faced many hardships
and resentment from neighbours, but they persevered and stayed true to themselves.
