The person in the photo is one of my best friends Abbie, to me she epitomises everything good about the territory. We both moved to the Territory at 18 and since, have worked and travelled across numerous remote locations together around the Territory. As many know, whilst living and working in some of these remote places, it’s almost guaranteed you’ll go a little bit insane. Thankfully with Abbie around, going insane is embraced as she makes the absolute most out of it, ensuring everyone has fun whilst getting as many laughs out of whoever she can everyday. Having worked in the tourism industry for the past 4 years it’s also been part of Abbies daily life to sell the beauty of the Territory to many different travellers, luckily for Abbie her genuine love and passion for the Territory ensures that others are able to truly experience and appreciate the beauty the NT has to offer. Whether it be her appreciation of the vast art and culture, her knowledge of the varying flora and fauna or her hard working attitude Abbie is the type of person who makes living and working in the Territory such an exciting and rewarding opportunity. This photos encapsulates this idea perfectly, after finishing a long 10 hour shift at a remote Fishing lodge in Maningrida Arnhem Land, Abbie always made sure to make the most of what was left of the day. Setting up the hammock over looking the never ending picturesque scenery, with a beer in hand, watching as the bright red sun sets and cracking a few horrible jokes, she knows the best way to finish off another perfect day living and working in the Territory.
