The Screen Guide

Swagmen used to be a common sight on the roads of Australia, carrying their swags from homestead to homestead, living off odd jobs and stray food. Drew Kettle, a 72-year-old wanderer, takes to the road again, and another two thousand kilometres to add to his tally of 10,000 or more. His delightful insights and Australian bush charm show us the remote Kimberley region and the folklore surrounding 'swaggies' as we travel with the last swagmen.
