Walk for Solar

People from the town of Port Augusta are walking over 300km to Adelaide as part of their campaign to have the coal-fired power station (which is closing anyway) replaced with solar power.

You can follow their progress on the Walk for Solar site. As i write this, they have completed 74km, with 254km still to go. They aim to get to Adelaide by September 30.

Other walks (very very much smaller) will be happening around the country on that day, in support of the Port Augusta people and their quest for solar power in their town.
