14 June: Canberra — Narrandera
Today Matilda is travelling from Canberra, ACT to Narrandera, NSW.
Matilda is excited to visit Wagga Wagga, and the ‘Dog on a Tuckerbox’, 5 miles from Gundagai.
Climate change and global warming is going to have a significant impact in Outback Australia; if we don’t have any trees, we won’t have any rain.
Matilda believes in sustainable forestry; unfortunately she just hasn’t seen it yet. Matilda is particularly concerned about the impacts of Private Forestry in Outback Australia.
