The Soundtrails tells of Bingara’s history, in particular the Orange Trees and the experiences of living through war both at the front and at home in Bingara.
Local residents who have given their stories include Brian Hughes, Jean O’Brien, Pat Brown and Joan Bull. Joan Bull tells of her visit to Sydney at the beginning of WWII to farewell her brother who had enlisted with the Light Horse Regiment. She describes the spectacle of seeing the Queen Mary liner and expresses her fear of not knowing if she will see her brother again.
Beautifully produced by award-winning sound producers, the Bingara Soundtrails are a living, breathing doorway into the voices, sounds, and music of the people of Bingara. It includes performances by local artists including Jamie Wilson. Jamie took the words of a poem found in the George Bateman journal and created an amazing song.
WHY ISN’T THE GOOD ACCESS BADGE TURNED ON?
Some listings are here because we think they’re pretty cool and you should know about them! And some, we just haven’t quite got enough info to make the ‘Good Access’ call yet.. so to answer the question, a business could be listed on our site if:
A. The business indicates they have some accessible facilities, but we haven’t quite gotten around to chatting through the details, stay tuned! If you’ve been here, leave a review and let us know about your experience!
B. We have spoken to their team.. the facilities aren’t quite what we’d call accessible BUT we’ve provided you with ‘good to know’ tips in case you’re keen to give it a go anyway!
