Episode 27. Danielle Doyle – The adventures of Miss Chardy from Mittiebah Station

Danielle Doyle has become an iconic character of outback Australia over the past 7 years through her insightful (and hilarious) blog and “Miss Chardy“.

Labelled by her husband as an “indoor cat”, Dan Doyle is not your typical cattle station manager’s wife. She doesn’t ride horses, and you won’t catch her out on a muster or in the cattle yards.

She’s unapologetically authentic and has built a family and life she loves in the middle of “bum-truck-nowhere” despite not “fitting in”.

In this episode Dan and Steph have a yarn about Dan’s experience of marching to the beat of her own drum, and the launch of the “most effed cookbook ever”.

Want to hear more from Dan? Head on over to the “Wild Spark” podcast to follow her adventures and have a good laugh.
