What is Australia's third largest island?

That's where Nerida, Bruce and Melanie are today and tomorrow - Australia's third largest island is Kangaroo Island, located off the coast of South Australia. The largest is Tasmania, and the second largest is Melville Island, located off the coast of the Northern Territory.

We're here with Kangaroo Island NRM to observe a Performance Story pilot workshop and then explore links between our Regional Knowledge Strategy process and the Performance Story process. You can hear about Performance Stories in this presentation (mp3 audio). One of our Regional Knowledge Strategy pilots, NRM North in Tasmania, has already also gone through the Performance Story pilot process.

Despite an amazingly strong, cold wind, we were last night able to take a walk to explore some historic sites in the town of Kingscote where we are staying, including a visit to Kangaroo Island's penguins. The
Island is famous for its natural assets, particularly its wildlife.
