Red Dirt, Blue Skies

Telling the story of Australia’s Northern Gas Pipeline, Red Dirt, Blue Skies traverses the country, from Melbourne to Darwin via Mt Isa and Tennant Creek – with stops along the way. From boardrooms to the bush and beyond, the book tells the stories of the people and places integral to this fascinating project, with rare insights into energy production and what makes the industry tick.

Services: Research, interviews, writing, editing, design, photography, typesetting, proof reading and production.

It was so exciting to have the opportunity to engage with stakeholders ranging from farmers to traditional owners, from politicians to Jemena management, to truly tell the story of this interesting and challenging pipeline project.


Thank you all so much for the enormous effort you demonstrated throughout the development of the project’s coffee table book. Looking through the final version and approving the book for printing filled me with a huge amount of pride – together we have developed a high-quality book that the wider project team will look back on with fond memories.’
