Description

Steven Craig manages a highly successful cattle station for its traditional owners, the Mistake Creek community. Situated on the border of Western Australia and the Northern Territory, the property has earned a reputation for its cattle and is proudly self-sufficient. Steven's wife Jo-Anne and children play a significant part in the life of the station, but it hasn't always been that way. While Steven was drawn to the bush, the rest of the family couldn't cope with the isolation and often chose to remain in town. The situation almost tore them apart. They've struggled to keep the marriage and family together but at Mistake Creek they've built a new way of life. Mistake Creek is an example of how dreams can be fulfilled - with commitment, dedication and sheer hard work.
