Our ecoWALKs are about discovering the hidden layers of our regional landscapes in a way you won’t have encountered them before. Some will be quiet walks, some will encourage you to respond to what you’re experiencing — all of them will provide you with a new way of appreciating the natural world.

Subscribe to our monthly e-news for updates on when they’re running. They’re usually associated with our projects, so there’s no set schedule.


Wambuul Soundwalk

Sunday 28 August 2022, 1-2.30pm
1.5 hours along the river in Dubbo

Enjoy a Sunday afternoon stroll through Biddybungie Reserve on the western bank of the Wambuul/ Macquarie, introducing you to a sonic riverside world you will have never heard before. This 1.5-hour walk requires nothing but a mobile phone with a QR code reader, earbuds/headphones, and a willingness to listen…actively and deeply. Guided by Dubbo-based field recordist, sound artist, Kim V. Goldsmith, the Wambuul Soundwalk celebrates the riverine environment through listening, questioning, thinking, and wonder at those sounds that exist below the surface. This free, community event has been funded by the Country Arts Support Program (CASP) with thanks to Create NSW and Orana Arts.

If rained out, we’ll postpone until Sunday, 11 September – same times

This sound walk is part of the Sonic Territories: Wambuul project.
