In the big old ute, on the long red road, in the desert of my home, we all set off for the rabbit-hole golf course. It's the best place around here to find rabbits. We sit by the holes, we dig, we wait ...Thump tick, thump tick, thump tick Where are all the rabbits? A warm and funny Australian story.
