GARRY and Leanne Hall’s life on the land at Warren, in NSW, is has been an emotional and environmental rollercoaster ride – from a spectacular land of plenty to the depths of drought, including destocking their station The Mole.
But our most recent drought, which almost brought the Halls to their knees, is already a fading memory as the couple watch with fascination as water brings the region back to life.
Especially the 200,000 hectares of wetlands which make up the Macquarie Marshes. They have been reincarnated as hundreds of thousands of birds make their way back to the breeding grounds.
