Drifting Down the Darling
In the 1970s, Tony Pritchard drifted over a thousand miles down the Darling River in western New South Wales in a ten-foot boat with no motor or oars, and the trip took around eighteen months. He went fishing and birdwatching, stopped at towns, did a bit of station work, met some of Australia’s finest people and all the while looked for adventure and answers to life’s question about where he belonged. Discover more about this extraordinary life when Tony talks about his travel memoir Drifting Down the Darling at Canowindra Library on Tuesday 7th August at 2.30pm. Tony will also be speaking at Orange City Library on Thursday 9th August at 5.30pm. Please book your place online through eventbrite or call your library.
