Conflux Post 4 – The Interviews

Part of the process of preparing the audio component of our Conflux performance was to interview a number of local personalities, from a diverse range of demographics, about stories from their life on the river.  The attached audio clips are:

1) a paddleboat captain recalling the moment Captain Sturt arrived at the confluence of the Murray and Darling and names the Murray River.
