Series producer Louise Turley said the team enjoyed visiting Nyngan that had such a wonderful story to share. "There are many layers, deeper layers in Nyngan," said Ms Turley.

The episode will take a look at the landscape of the town and feature a number of Nyngan’s known residents. 

The program will take a look at those making a difference, not just within the community but also on the other side of the world. 

"It’s incredible a town in the middle of nowhere can have a big heart and help people on the other side of the planet," she said.

The program is set to air on ABC1 at 8pm on Monday, July 30.
