Episode Info:

Hayley Talbot is the first person to solo kayak the great Clarence River (Boorimbah) from source to sea, a 400 kilometre voyage. She's a former competitive surfer and lawyer who found her home in fresh water. 

In 2017, Hayley Talbot found herself mired in the monotony of raising two young children. She’d yearned to know more about the source of the Clarence River, where she’d grown up and surfed around the river mouth. She wanted to know where it came from. 

Hayley spent two years preparing, having never kayaked before, but kissed her two young children goodbye for a self-initatied right of passage adventure. Hers is a story about belonging, making space for self amidst parenthood, connecting with indigenous wisdom, and daring to venture outside of our social conditioning.
