    Hi everyone, I am Australian, I live in Northern NSW. I am new to this forum, I am interested in being prepared for an uncertain future and I believe that education is the key to being prepared. My focus at the moment is to learn as much as possible about water, the testing and purification of water in particular. We are very lucky where I live to be surrounded by both fresh and salt water of a very high quality but I fear that this will not last forever.
    Anyone that has some knowledge or advice on this topic, I would love to hear from. Thanks

    Welcome from Texas!

    We used to have three (or more?) folks from Oz checking in here often, but "Wellrounded" is the only one I see post a fair bit regularly.

    Another howdy from Texas.

    Since you're in Oz, you might try looking up Geoff Lawton and the Permaculture Research Institute. Not sure exactly where he's located in Oz, but I'd bet on him having better advice specific to your location than folks thousands of miles away. :)

    G'day from Northern Australia.

    Been here for a few years but don't post very often and generally keep to the food - canning and dehydrating and gardening forums.

    Very wise I try to stay away from politics but too opinionated I guess. Hope you enjoy the site.
