VIDEO: Old-school outback science

  • January 12, 2016

Outback Queensland grazier and self-taught natural historian Angus Emmott has discovered several species, with even a few named after him.

Together with his family, Angus Emmott runs Noonbah Station, a 100-year-old cattle station located in outback Queensland, some 100km from Longreach on top of the channel country. 

Besides being a grazier, Angus is passionate about the unique natural world that surrounds him in Western Queensland. A self-taught natural historian, he has discovered several species, with a few even named after him and his family. He's also an avid photographer and boasts a vast collection of magnificent wildlife photographs.

In this video, we hear from him and his passion for this sparsely documented part of the world.
