Hear from Bob Brown at Deakin Edge as he speaks about one of the world’s last great wild places, takayna/Tarkine.
Bob Brown will be joined by Australian comedian, Corinne Grant for this special event which features a unique performance by a group of Tasmanian Aboriginal women, muka nawnta, along with short films and a stunning photographic exhibition from the Tarkine in Motion project.
Tasmania’s magnificent takayna/Tarkine boasts 450,000 hectares of mountains, ancient Aboriginal cultural sites, jagged coastlines, towering sand dunes, wild rivers and Australia’s largest temperate rainforest. Yet virtually the whole area remains unprotected, with mining, logging and off-road vehicles and constant threat to the natural and cultural values of this remarkable place.
Come along and be introduced to takayna/Tarkine and the Bob Brown Foundation’s campaign to protect the 450,000 hectares as a National Park and listing as World Heritage.
