For the last 19 years, Peter Rowe, or Rowie, as he is known by the locals, has been delivering mail to small towns and cattle stations along the Oodnadatta Track in South Australia.

Rowie is an incredible gentleman who’s story is, well, incredible. I had such a great time yarning with him that we ended up recording for 2 hours, so this episode will be release in 2 parts.

In this first part Rowie shares the story of how he came to Coober Pedy to become a millionaire, and why he swapped Opal Mining for Pottery. It was such a privilege to hear these stories, and holy hatbox this fella drops some gold nuggets of wisdom along the way!

Make sure you check back next week for Part 2!
