Welcome

2017 Calendar on sale now!

The Bush Kids team know, and understand the value of the lifesaving work that is performed by the RFDS to the Australian public, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, first hand. As we all live and work in rural and remote Australia, it was a natural fit when considering doing a fundraising activity, to choose the RFDS whose “mantle of safety” gives us the assurance that when emergency medical help is needed, the RFDS will come any hour of the night or day, to render assistance and potentially save a life of our friends or family members, anywhere in the length and breath of Australia.

Unique Bush Kids Christmas Card Packs are also available this year in quantities of 5,10 or 20. Kindly painted by Bridget Knight, all proceeds also go to the RFDS.

Last year with the help of the Australian public, we managed to raise in a very short period of time, $6,000 to go toward the lifesaving work of John Flynn’s RFDS. The enduring legacy of the RFDS has stood the test of time and with all of our support, will go on into perpetuity, ensuring that no place that is too far, or too remote, that the RFDS medical team cannot reach.

Please support our fundraising efforts by buying a unique piece of Australiana – a Bush Kids RFDS 2017 Calendar. This Calendar was put together from over 400 entries into our Calendar competition, with the final result being a snapshot into the lives of bush kids and their families from Australia all over.

Bush kids to put a smile on your dial

THEY are resilient, resourceful and innovative ... and extremely adorable to boot.

With so much tenacity and charm, it's no wonder country youngsters are the perfect muses for the Bush Kids annual calendar. 

Bush Kids Facebook page founder Tricia Agar said the gorgeous photos sparked feelings of nostalgia for those who grew up on the land and highlighted the hard work being done by children in farming families.

Although Bush Kids' 30,000 followers react more to "cute” images, Tricia said she tried hard to promote the pictures that showed older children working alongside their parents.

Bush Kids Australia

Each year Bush Kids FB page keeps growing with an ever increasing audience. So many people are touched by the photographs and stories that are contributed to the FB page.  The photographs resonate with those fortunate ones that were given a bush childhood or are currently living their own bush dream. Images depicting the innocent joy of the little ones, the often hard but rewarding work of the older kids, plus the unending opportunities for fun and freedom on a scale that is not as usual in our society today. For those kids who are being reared in the bush/country/rural towns all across this vast land of ours, the photographs show a lifestyle that in many ways has not changed over the decades, and for many older “bush kids”, these images bring back many fond memories and helps them re-connect with their country roots.
