Nioka farm is located at Thangool, about 50km from Biloela in North Queensland. The farm is owned and run by the Wippell family who practice traditional and organic farming methods. Nioka is also registered with HelpX – a website that offers backpackers to stay and work on a farm in exchange for food and accomodation. If you would like to find out more about staying on the farm, you can view the Wippell family’s profile on HelpX.
This body of work is a collaboration between Louise Wright and Lachlan Gardiner and was completed in July 2011.
A selection of these images were exhibited in “Finding Biloela: A Photo Documentary”, at the Art Factory Gallery, South Brisbane, Qld in August 2011.
