Being born and raised on the land hasn’t meant any free passes for Angie Nisbet. Forging her own path as a stockwoman and grazier hasn’t come easy. She’s had to work tirelessly and prove a lot of people wrong. As if running Landsborough Downs near Hughenden Queensland wasn’t challenging enough – she’s recently added a couple more roles into the mix: mother to three children under four with a fly-in-fly-out husband and podcast host. Angie is a powerhouse and the perfect guest to mark International Rural Women’s Day this weekend.
