A former deputy Prime Minister of Australia, Tim was perhaps best known for his passion for regional Australia, his love of trains and his statesmanship.

He was a Bush Heritage Ambassador and a champion of the bush all his life, visiting a number of our reserves over the years.

In 2008, right before he was appointed Australia’s first resident ambassador to the Vatican, Tim visited our Carnarvon Station Reserve in central Queensland.

He said at the time: “Although my commitments in the Vatican will impact on my ambassadorial role with Bush Heritage, my belief and passion for the work you are doing has not diminished.”

Vale Tim Fischer – thank you for all your support.

From all at Bush Heritage Australia.
