Writer Francesca Rendle-Short joined a bus full of artists to journey to the burnt-out Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve six weeks after the devastating Canberra fires in 2003.
‘What surprised, that day as we sped out past Point Hut Crossing to the Tidbinbilla valley, was how green everything was. It was in your face – unnerving and breathtakingly beautiful. And when I say green I mean iridescent green, an unnatural green, the green you’d find on the inside of a green Texta: engrossing.’
