History

"I remember the Murray River running strong and majestic with its many paddle steamers and their barges negotiating the river bends. Also in times of flood. Now I see degradation and despair as drought and poor water management starve the river. But there is still beauty in the colours and textures as it struggles to survive around a bend in the river. "

[Yvonne Line, 2017]
