A classic Aussie tale of triumph in the face of adversity, this is the story of the dramatic change in fate for a tiny, historical town in Tasmania's picturesque north-west when a small but dedicated band of local residents refused to let their town die. Today this quaint region and its quirky, endearing characters attract over 200,000 visitors a year.

Sheffield Inc, the producers of the documentary, appreciate the great interviews with Brian Inder - Founding member of KAT, 1985, Cheyne Purdue - Mural Artist, Julian Bale - Murals Curator and Restorer and Mark Beach-Ross - Vice President of Sheffield Inc.

A big thanks to all the volunteers that made this little docco come to life. Especially, Danielle Rodgers for her efforts in the creative department, getting the story-line just right, and also a special thanks to Aimee Bell for her enthusiasm behind the camera, sound and audio recording, and the wonderful job she did with the editing. And a serious, double thumbs-up to Rick Eaves, for the sparkly bits that made the girls' work shine.

We are truly grateful, for the photographs supplied by:
