This week, ABC Radio in South Australia takes a journey of discovery from the Menindee Lakes on the Darling River through to the Murray mouth at Goolwa to examine the state of the ancient river lifeline.
The entire ABC Radio broadcast team across South Australia and Broken Hill will join forces to meet the locals, share the challenges and celebrate the beauty and grandeur of life on the river system.
ABC Radio presenters Peter Goers, David Bevan, Sonya Feldhoff, Ali Clarke, Jules Schiller, plus regional presenters Cassie Hough, Michael Condon and Narelle Graham will all take their programs out of the studio during the week.
Starting at the community celebration “Dancing on the Darling”, broadcast locations include Burke and Wills Park in Menindee, ABC Broken Hill studios, Wentworth – the junction of the Murray and the Darling, Renmark, Tailem Bend and the Murray mouth at Goolwa.
Listeners can share the exploration of the state of the Murray-Darling, and implications for all South Australians, across broadcast, online and social media from May 24 to 31.
