Adelaide’s coastline once teamed with life. High dunes and vast wetlands ran from modern day Brighton, north to the very tip of the Le Fevre Peninsula. Urban development has spelled an end to much of this habitat. The most significant remaining patch is the Tennyson Dunes.
Seen through the life of one man, Sand in my Veins explores this very last remnant of coastal sand dunes. The last stronghold for Painted Dragons and Singing Honeyeaters, these dunes are now besieged by feral pests, inappropriate development, sea level rise, ignorance and vandalism.
It is a story of passion, fighting spirit and a struggle against the odds.
