A Bit Of Rain Grew A Big Idea

April 28, 2016

This month we’re looking into the funny, quirky and interesting stories behind some of Australia’s famous Big Things, and as part of that series we chat with the man whose big idea put a small town on an international scale.

Ron Hunt is the Project Coordinator of The Big Gumboot in one of Australia’s wettest towns, Tully, Queensland.
