How the town has changed in my time

I've only been in Central Australia since 1990, came up from down south seeking adventure, like most people who come to the NT.

I didn’t realise that I would marry a local pastoralist and in doing so firmly entrench my future in this region.

This town was founded by business brought in from the pioneers of the countryside, the graziers who risked their life and their savings to venture forth into the unknown to start up a virtually unknown business in the middle of nowhere.

Nowadays the town seems to rely on mining, indigenous organisations and government staff and contracts to keep businesses afloat, with a bit of tourism thrown in for good measure.

Pastoralism seems to be forgotten at times, oh, except when the fires hit last year. LIZ BIRD, from Indiana Station, is pondering, from a little distance, the question of how The Alice has changed, in this week's Food for Thought.
