THE Woolmark Company and self-professed “wild bush girl” Isabel Lucas have teamed up with Country Road to produce a short film honouring the brand's true-blue heritage.

The one-and-a-half minute film - shot on location at Boonoke sheep station in the NSW Riverina, the birthplace of the Merino wool stock lines - resembles a fashion-forward episode of McLeod's Daughters, complete with panning shots of sun-drenched paddocks and glimpses inside the shearing shed.

Ms Lucas, who is based in Hollywood, was attracted to the project because she grew up in Kakadu.

“I've always had a close connection to nature; I like to spend as much time as possible outdoors," she said. "While I really appreciate living in a big city, I do need to have the land, trees and ocean close by, so, yes, I guess it's the country girl in me. It's been wonderful to come home to Australia and reconnect with the landscapes here.”

The star of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has never been afraid to get her fingers dirty on set, and she even saddled up for the fashion film shoot.

“I got to ride a horse again," she said. "My sister and I grew up riding horses, and I still have my horse from when I was 12. I saved up and paid for her myself.

"My horse is retired now, so I don't get to ride her very much. Being on horseback again, surrounded by the open country, witnessing the beautiful horizon at twilight was one of my memorable moments during filming.”

We should pump as much CO2 out as we can - get sea levels rising as quick as possible - more

Interesting that the mega Corporations like Coles, so vigorously fight for free and open markets
