Thursday, February 16th, 7pm

Local librarian Barbara MacKenzie will be doing a travel presentation on her most recent trip to Australia in June 2010.   It was a northern outback adventure that saw 3 couples travel from Darwin (on the northern tip of the Northern Territory) along the Great Northern Highway out to Broome (the main source of South Sea Pearls) and then up the Dampier Peninsula to Cape Leveque – a distance of 2156 km one way!  Needless to say, nothing ever goes as planned!
