The vastness and isolation of a Western Australian corn farm located near a turquoise beach was captured in drone footage created in September 2016.

Red earth, waving green crops and the transparent Indian Ocean waters were filmed in the making of the video, which was produced for West Australian Corn Growers.

Most of the footage was shot over Shelamar Station, more than 2200km north of Perth.

“Accessing the Station requires a two hour flight from Perth to Broome and then a further two hours drive south of Broome,” film-maker Peter Bradshaw said.

“Shelamar Station is therefore one of the most isolated agricultural enterprises in the world.”

The station is located a short distance from the white sand and clear sea of the Kimberley coastline, and permission must be sought from local Aboriginal land owners before the coast can be visited.
