Sludge: A Filthy Bendigo Story

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 10 August 2019
Author / Presenters: Peter Davies, Susan Lawrence, Chris Pedler

The gold mining that made Victoria rich was disastrous for the land, causing environmental devastation that still affects our rivers and floodplains. Why has the story of contamination and destruction not been told before? Peter Davies and Susan Lawrence finally reveal a filthy secret, which also shows us all kinds of interesting things about the landscape we now inhabit. They talk to Chris Pedler about their search for the history of “sludge”.
