[Extract] Rural and regional Australia is a big place. That's obvious enough. Still, it's easy to forget that the communities and industries of non-metropolitan Australia are diverse. They face a variety of challenges and often have different, if not competing, stakes in government policy.

But what are the issues that deserve attention leading up to the 2016 federal election?
