Des, Emily, Jack, Dominic and Nevaeh are from Auckland, NZ. They joined MAF in September and then spent 3 months in Yirrkala. Most of their gear came over by plane beforehand, leaving their 4WD to arrive by barge the following week. (A GA8 can lift 500kg and takes up to six 200L drums.) Their actual arrival was delayed by 24 hours when rain set in at Gove airport late in the day.
