About Emma

Based in Broome and travelling around the Kimberley!

Emma grew up on a small farm near Pittsworth. She went to the Glennie school in Toowoomba where she graduated in 2015. In March 2016, her mother Sarah, and a very apprehensive Emma commenced the 5500km journey to Nerrima Station in the Kimberley, Western Australia.


There, Emma worked as a jillaroo – mustering, fencing, yard work, maintenance etc. It didn’t take long for her to fall in love with the Kimberley. To try and capture the beauty around her, early in the year she bought a second-hand camera from the cook.


In September 2016 she made her Instagram, Life On A Station, which now has over 14.5k followers. Her Instagram has led to an ABC InvisFarmer blog, Rural Weekly and other newspaper articles, a Graziher magazine story and a Landline feature in early 2018.


After finishing up at Nerrima in November she drove down to Pardoo station ready to start work the following year. Pardoo is a short 2 hour drive north of Port Hedland. She started working at Pardoo in January 2017 and returned home to Queensland in November.


She is now a student at the University of Queensland, Gatton studying a Bachelor of Sustainable Agriculture. Studying externally and based in Broome.
