It saddens me to learn the news of the passing of Jack Absalom. A true Aussie bushman, artist and gentleman
I grew up watching his series as a kid and took his book with me on my first trip around Australia when i was 17. I have met him a few times and he was always very free with his time and very good to my kids.
Thanks Jack.

Sad to hear when our National outback icons pass on.
I remember his outback cookbook and the recipe for two camel stew.
RIP
Cheers
