Heartland Journeys

Explore the places | stories | nature
across the Gondwana Link

Kaya! Welcome!

Gondwana Link invites you on a journey through some of the most biodiverse ecosystems on earth: from tall forests, slender-stemmed mallee and wildflower-rich heath to the world’s largest temperate woodland.

Heartland Journeys can help connect you to part of the world’s oldest continuous culture and deepen your understanding and experience of these living landscapes.

Explore their intricacies and richness: tiny honey possums as pollinators; malleefowl that incubate their eggs in nesting mounds of compost; an incredible variety of plants; and inspiring community successes in restoring ecological health.

A true friend to region’s threatened species

Dr Tony Friend, as part of working with some of Australia’s rarest wildlife, has the joy of holding and making eye contact with numbats. At an early age, Tony discovered his mind was wired to maths and science, which led him to specialise in the recovery of threatened mammals.

Gondwana Link is delighted to share insights into Tony’s immense experience and knowledge and to highlight his major contributions to wildlife conservation.
