The Roadhouse to Nowhere is a story about a special part of the world. A world where currently, not many people live or visit. Central Australia is one of the world's great wilderness areas. This story follows the life of a young man who describes many of his adventures. It is an insight into some of the important elements of life - work, friendship, helping others, and having fun!

This story can be used in many ways as to how students would contribute. What skills would they bring to help other people?

Lifestyle discussion can be reviewed as to the amount of time spent in active leisure rather than passive. A lifestyle that is not dependent on a screen or just a computer game. Having adventures fishing, camping, hunting, and exploring some of the remote parts of Australia.

This story is to inspire young people into other options in their lives besides their current sedentary screen-dominated existence.

Isolation is discussed too and, ironically, the number and quality of communication can be better in remote areas rather than in urban centres.

It points young people to activities they may not have considered and could build character and resilience. As Australia's inland looks for people to help run the new enterprises there will be many further opportunities to consider.

Literacy is always the focus but there is the opportunity to be inspired by stories of young people having adventures with interesting lives.

Suitable for primary and lower secondary ages.
