Diary of an Australian Outback Woman


Meet Australian Outback 1940's restaurant owner Sheila and journey through her life with stories, song, bush verse, photographs and mouth watering recipes.

Sheila was an Australian town girl who married an outback Australian farmer in the early 1940's. After 40 yrs of cooking for shearers, coping with the harsh outback heat, flies, droughts and floods, Sheila, at the age of 60yrs, opened a successful homestead restaurant.

Sheila's dessert trolley, laden with pavlova, creme caramel, mocha chocolate roll, mulberry pie, bowls of chocolate mousse and long stemmed glases filled with strawberry romanoff, was famous throughout the region.

Written and performed by award winning Australian family story playwright Christine Middleton. Accompanied by Tim Sheed, Australian Bush Poet and son of Sheila.
