George and Margo Chapman have earned highly respected prominence among the pioneers of international tourism in North Australia. The 'jewel in the crown' is the famous Skyrail - the world's longest cable chairlift - which allows visitors an unprecedented view of rainforest while leaving the delicate environment undisturbed. Other elements in the portrait refer to George's background as a surveyor, Margo's career as a teacher of Home Economics specializing in pattern drafting, and the romantic side of their life-long partnership.
