Shoulder to Shoulder - the final day
Walkers arriving at Taronga Zoo
Taronga and the Department of Family and Community Services today helped welcome 29 young people from the Burbangana and Walanmarra programs after their epic 490km ‘Shoulder to Shoulder’ relay walk from Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo to Taronga Zoo, Sydney.
Shoulder to Shoulder - from country to city
Over the past few days we have travelled from Denman through Wollombi and Kulnara, then across the Hawkesbury and onto Manly.
Shoulder to Shoulder - Day five
It’s day five and we have passed through some amazing country over the past few days. The beautiful green pasture from the recent rain is just so vibrant and colourful. We are seeing lots of wildlife along the way including goannas, birds and echidnas.
Walking on day two
The first day of Shoulder to Shoulder was really good. Apart from the fact that we had to make some changes due to the recent rainfall, and an area that we were going to go through was submerged in water, it’s been great!
