The 360 km route from Mount Kosciuszko down to Twofold Bay near Eden crosses some of the nation’s wildest, most remarkable landscapes. From the highest part of this continent to the ocean, the Bundian Way is a track as much as a meeting place, a path to reconciliation.

This signature multi-media event involves new work by Kate Neal, Brenda Gifford, Eric Avery and Damian Barbeler. Instigated by Damian Barbeler, the 75 minute performance is immersive, with images from the track and music which captures the many aspects of nature and culture of the south east of Australia.  Featuring John Blay himself reading from the book that captures the track, the performance will be followed by a Q+A with John Blay, the author of ‘On Track’.
