This walk will focus on connecting and caring for one of the largest intact woodland ecosystems on earth. (www.wilderness.org.au/campaigns/great-western-woodlands)
We will start our walk on the historic Holland track, and venture deep into the heart of the Salmon Gum and salt lake country. It is planned to connect with the traditional owners of the area, the Ngadju people at our second campsite, as well as hear from reps from conservation groups campaigning for the Woodlands as part of the Gondwana Link program.
