View descriptionShare

Shirley is an avid traveller, and as a single older woman, she does not shy away from 4WD tours in some of the remotest parts of South Australia and Northern Territory.  She was out on a tag-about tour and had been feeling good all day but as the sun went down she collapsed by her camp bed and lay on the ground for a number of hours before she was discovered by fellow campers.
