JORDAN TRAIL HAS BEEN NOTHING SHORT AWE-INSPIRING​

The Jordan Trail isn’t just a physical journey; it’s a testament to human resilience, a celebration of cultural diversity, and a reminder of the beauty of Jordan. My experiences along this trail have shaped me, pushing my limits, broadening my horizons, and instilling a deep appreciation for the world’s natural wonders and the kindness of strangers. The Jordan Trail is not just a success story in my life; it’s a story of the triumph of a country that has so much to offer.

Restore Pedder Now

2022 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the tragic and shameful flooding of Southwest Tasmania’s Lake Pedder for hydro-electricity in the 1970s.

And now, momentum is building to drain the dam and to restore Pedder to its former glory. Bob Brown, Christine Milne and Tabatha Badger look at the early days of the original campaign, the aftermath of the flooding, and the hope that this great wrong can be righted.
