The Bob Brown Foundation is hosting a special event 'Melbourne will save takayna/Tarkine' on Saturday 5th of December, 2015 at Deakin Edge Federation Square.
From 6pm, Bob Brown will be joined by Australian comedian, Corinne Grant for this special event which features a unique performance by a group of Tasmanian Aboriginal women, muka nawnta, along with short films and a stunning photographic exhibition from the Tarkine in Motion project.
During the event, Bob Brown will speak about one of the world's last great wild places, takayna/Tarkine.
Tasmania's magnificent takayna/Tarkine boasts 450,000 hectares of mountains, ancient Aboriginal cultural sites, jagged coastlines, towering sand dunes, wild rivers and Australia's largest temperate rainforest. Yet virtually the whole area remains unprotected, with mining, logging and off-road vehicles and constant threat to the natural and cultural values of this remarkable place.
All are welcome to come along to this event and are invited to support the Bob Brown Foundation's campaign to protect the 450,000 hectares as a National Park and listing as World Heritage.
Tickets are priced $25 pp or $20 concession; please click here to purchase your ticket to this very special event.
