North Taylors is the name of a paddock on the southwest slopes of New South Wales, south of the Murrumbidgee River, in the Birrego district, between the towns of Narrandera and Boree Creek.
Once a year, National Museum of Australia curator and environmental historian George Main visits North Taylors and writes a report that binds global issues of climate change and food security to the local, present day realities of this paddock, its history and possible futures.
