Last winter John and Marilyn Barkla walked the 230 km Larapinta Trail in the desert of Central Australia. It was a place of stunning landscapes, botanical surprises, scarce water and strange encounters with dingoes and scorpions. Come and hear how the journey unfolded and help John put names to the many unfamiliar plants they found.
