Bimblebox 153 Birds

Exhibition and Shows

23 Feb 2022 to 3 Apr 2022 Daily Event

Bimblebox 153 Birds surrounds you with the sights and sounds of birdlife found on the Bimblebox Nature Refuge. This unique installation combines artist prints, poetry, prose and musical interpretations of birdcalls contributed by over 450 people worldwide.

Each bird species found on Bimblebox is explored by a writer, an artist and a musician. Bird call inspired compositions and recordings of writers’ poetry and prose form a soundscape, while artists’ representations of the many and varied Bimblebox birds flock along the walls.

Located in Central Queensland’s Galilee Basin, Bimblebox is an 8000 hectare parcel of privately-held, never-been-cleared woodland and a significant pocket of biodiversity. Although protected in perpetuity by a Nature Refuge Agreement, it is not protected from, and is consequently threatened by, coal mining.

Bimblebox enthralls people who love being surrounded by birds while it sparks stories and conversations. It’s our story of our birds, how we experience them and sadly, how we may lose them.
