Ghosts, guns and God: 40 years paddling the Darling River

Tony Pritchard

ABC Radio Broken Hill, Friday, 22nd of September, 2017

The call of the Darling River has wooed Tony Pritchard 12 times in his life. He has seen many things change and much stay the same on Australia's third-longest waterway.

So why keep returning to the same river?

Mr Pritchard said the more he paddled the Darling, the more he learnt about life and himself.

"It's a spiritual river, it's good for adventure, good for looking for meaning, good for fishing, it's good for life," he said.

"Like with any travel you play tourist, you see stuff, which I love, but you learn about yourself. If you can do that, the whole experience is more powerful.

"Everyone's got their own Darling river. This just happens to be my space."
