Through wandering and wildflowering artist Kathleen McArthur and poet Judith Wright came to fall in love with Queensland’s wallum landscapes. In the 1960s this love ignited activism and prompted them to embark on one of Australia’s first major environmental campaigns. Through place-based encounters and wanderings with other women today, the experience is extended and expanded upon in ways unforseen. Walking bodies become became ‘entangled in monumental historical and social structures’ (Heddon & Turner 2012) resonating beyond single locations and times.
