In 2019 Peter Ridgeway took a walk- 180km to cross Sydney’s unique Cumberland Plain Woodland.

We leave the studio to visit Pete in the last woodland pockets of western Sydney. We learn about history, ecology and geology, plus our human relationship with this country. The relationship of traditional custodians. And those who have gone after. Plus we spend 10 mins competing VERY noisy cicadas, before loosing the battle and moving!
