The Drip Gorge and the women fighting for it
Play • 28 min
About half an hour north of Mudgee, on the Ulan Road, is a stunning natural sandstone formation which runs along the Goulburn River.

It's called The Drip Gorge, and it gets its name from the perennial trickle of water which runs down its face into the water below.

The Drip was added to the Goulburn River National Park a couple of years ago, but some locals are anxious that the nearby Moolarben coal mine and its plans for expansion could damage the cliffs, impact the water table, and render this unique and beloved spot too dangerous to visit.

We spoke to the women campaigning to save The Drip to find out what's at stake.
