In the heart of the of Queensland Outback lies the small town of Longreach.

For a couple of years now, a group of friends in the town have been playing an annual month-long game of tag.

Adults running around hiding from each other, either trying to avoid being tagged or chasing others to pass on the dreaded title of being 'it'.

One of these enthusiastic tag players is ABC producer Nicole Bond who talks to Emile Donovan about why it's proven to be such a hit.
