Help us Support the RFDS
The Royal Flying Doctor Service is one of the largest and most comprehensive aeromedical organisations in the world, providing extensive primary health care and 24-hour emergency service to people over an area of 7.3 million square kilometres.
At Bush Kids we are very excited to be producing another Calendar to support the incredible work of the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Last year, with the help of all those that contributed photographs and those who bought the inaugural Calendar back in 2016, we raised $6,000 in a few short months! We have gone on to have produced 4 Calendars, and are now putting together the 5th edition with the net proceeds going to the Victorian Division.
It really does take a team effort to raise funds, and this year we have been very blessed to have two amazing ladies who have stepped forward to assist to make the 2022 a reality – Natalie from Vigour Graphics and Maree from McGrath Media Group. We are sincerely indebted to this talented and generous dinky di bush “girls”. The old saying rings true “you can take the girl out of the bush, but you can’t take the bush out of the girl”!

Tricia, the founder of Bush Kids, along with her siblings spent their formative years at Hughenden and then Mt Isa and Charleville. Their love of the bush was taught to them by their father and mother (who is a 5th generation bush woman herself). Being reared on a remote cattle station with mostly their siblings and the kids of the family whose father worked in the mustering camp for company, has caused their family a deep appreciation for the bush culture and traditions.

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 FB page has more than 49,000 followers most people react more to “cute” images, Tricia said she tries hard to promote the pictures that showed older children working alongside their parents.
