Lucy Graham and Tropical North Queensland

In this edition of re:location, I talked with Lucy Graham, Cairns and Far North Environment Centre (CAFNEC) Director about Tropical North Queensland's incredible environment. We chatted about her work with CAFNEC, the incredible nature that you will find in this part of the world and the community's strong history of activism in pushing for environmental protection.

Down the East Coast

Drawn to the water, I sat myself on one of the sandstones that formed over thousands of years. Gazing over the beach, I was swept away with the enormity of the coastline. With the view framed by Tin Pan Bay and Double Island Point, all the senses came to life.

Karumba

This edition of re:location is about life in Karumba. This is a town with a real sense of ease and calm, and where nature rules. Nestled in the south east pocket of the Gulf of Carpentaria, I talk with a few of Karumba's 500 locals about what makes town tick, barramundi and life alongside crocodiles.

Alice Springs

At times, it’s hard to focus in a city like Alice Springs. There is a strong sense of people having deeply contrasting experiences – and there is a huge economic gap between the first nations and white communities. But running against the stereotype and reputation, my first impression of Alice was as an upbeat kind of place, and that it’s incredibly welcoming. Have a listen!

Ohio Revisited

It’s less than a week to go until the US Presidential Election and while the candidates make their final pitches, the States is registering record daily COVID 19 -infections. Derek Bauman rejoins me on the show to update us on how the last six month have been in America and the lead-up to the Presidential Election.

A gentle desert

When the rains came, they told me I was ‘stuck’. Unless I wanted to retrace my steps back along the bitumen, travelling the Oodnadatta Track would require an extreme patience and a real slowing down.

All about home

On this special 21st edition of re:location, we’re looking back at the conversations that have featured on the show since we started in April. In a year that’s been characterised by challenge and loss – people have been forced to find positives and get to know their cities better. It's been fascinating hearing them reflect on 'home'. Have a listen!
