Rural Australia front and centre in hung parliament

After years of battling drought, high living costs, reduced services and being generally ignored by government, rural Australia may well see its needs come to the fore in a big way.

Three key independents, all from regional Australia, hold the key to the next government, along with the new Green member for Melbourne Adam Bandt. Another independent in Tasmania and an 'independent National' in Western Australia, could also be in the mix.

The independents set to hold the balance of power
