This short documentary depicts the beauty and unique ecosystem of the Kalang area and the forests of north-eastern New South Wales, while exposing the unsustainability of past and future logging operations and the destruction of endangered wildlife habitats.

We went for a motorcycle ride to explore the Kalang River, to see the environment for ourselves. The increasingly narrow road twists and turns over numerous bridges up the Kalang valley, changing from bitumen to gravel as you get further into the valley. On the return, we followed the South Arm road along the river as far as Urunga.

In January 2020, after the devastating fires of the summer, Scotchmans and Rose Creek State Forests were “taken off the logging list“.
