Threatened Species Day at Broken Heel


The Murray-Darling system has been in turmoil after decades of taking too much water out of the rivers. The government has failed to address water theft and corruption and is leaving communities throughout the basin high and dry.

With the Darling River running dry, Broken Hill is on the front line. Instead of standing up to water theft and corruption, the government is building a 270km pipeline from the Murray to supply town water. This is putting insurmountable pressure on farming communities, the Menindee Lakes, fish & bird population and wetlands. 

Broken Hill also happens to be the home of the fabulous, Pricilla Queen of the Desert inspired Broken Heel Festival.

This year, Broken Heel starts on National Threatened Species Day. We are journeying to the outback to show solidarity with those suffering from drought and water theft and taking creative action to raise the profile of this very real issue.

We'll be staying to enjoy the festival over the weekend.
