Greg Keynes grew up on the family property, Curbur Station, in the Murchison region of Western Australia. He is a born and bred bush boy.
Working as a pastoralist and chopper pilot in the early 80’s gave him the unique opportunity of seeing only places that could be reached by helicopter, much of the Pilbara, Gascoyne and Murchison regions along with the world heritage listed Shark Bay.
Greg has a deep love of the land and has real concern of the future for the regions and climate change.
He now still travels the regions of WA continuing to write and working in various roles and keeping in touch with his 3 children and 2 grandchildren. Greg has a passion for the environment he grew up in and the challenges it faces for the future.
The Flying Bushman is Greg’s first memoir and follows through his story of life on the land and growing up in bush country Australia.
