Outback House follows a group of Australians who voluntarily choose to live life as it was 150 years ago on a sheep ranch. These Australians had no access to modern tools or technology for work or for leisure. These so called time travelers could only survive off of what they could hunt or grow. Dust, isolation, and heat had to be dealt with through sheer force of will as there was no running water or electricity.
