How About Giving Leigh a Help Along

Leigh is undertaking this trip to create awareness of the environmental issues confronting all Australians. He will be giving talks to many schools and community groups along the route. The trip is expected to take approximately 3 months. During this time Leigh will not be earning any money at all, if you can spare a few dollars to help him along, it would be greatly appreciated.

The river flows into lake Nagambie; as the water begins to flow slower and the river grows wider, inundating the banks and spanning across the landscape. The meandering river transforms into a vast body of water that lays by the rural town of Nagambie, forming lagoons and peninsulars, wetlands and marshlands that at times seem more familiar to Louisiana than Victoria.
