SOLAR TUK TUK SPREADING SUSTAINABLE MESSAGE

Going on a marathon road trip is a particularly Aussie thing to do – just not in a tuk tuk, with a top speed of 50 kilometres an hour.

But that’s exactly what an intrepid group of young adventurers IS doing… driving up the east coast in a rickshaw, powered by the sun, to spread the word about sustainability.

The SolarTuk will be in Port Macquarie, Grafton and Byron Bay this week, for more info, visit www.solartuk.org
