Sarah decided to tackle the Murray River in her home country of Australia, less than eight months after completing the Nile expedition.
While there weren’t any hippos and crocs to deal, it wasn’t without its risks. There were snakes (and of course being Australian they were deadly), extreme weather conditions, sections with little water thanks to the drought and plenty more challenges to deal with.
In 60 days Sarah covered 2,500km.
The first four days were trekking to the source with a small team and then sticking within a stone’s throw until it was time to get in her kayak.
For the next 56 days Sarah was solo.
On 13th February 2020 Sarah reached the Southern Ocean and the end of the Murray River. It was another expedition that tested her mentally as much as physically.
