The Tathra-Bermagui Road is iconic to our region. A much-loved 35km stretch of coastal road its winding journey encompasses spotted gum forests, coastal vistas, rolling hills and farmland. Along the way are pristine beaches, streams and lakes, Yuin and settler historic sites, a winery, galleries, charming wooden community halls, and – most memorably - five historic and pleasingly percussive wooden bridges. In 2021 five teams of local artists created a short site-specific performance video inspired by, and performed on, wooden bridges along the Tathra-Bermagui Rd. For the 2022 Four Winds Festival, Home Stretch was installed in intriguing locations along the road, creating an adventure journey for festival audiences
Culture, music, storytelling, dance and image-making have been practiced on Country for millennia by Australia's First People. I acknowledge and pay respect to the original custodians of Culture and Country where I live in Tathra, the Djiringanj people of the Yuin Nation on the Far South Coast of New South Wales, and the palawa/pakana, First People of lutruwita Tasmania.
