Bimblebox 153 Birds is a unique installation inspired by the birdlife of the Bimblebox Nature Refuge in Queensland. Each bird species found at Bimblebox, which is threatened by coal mining, is lovingly documented by a writer, an artist and a musician. Experience the artist prints, poetry, prose and musician’s birdcalls contributed by more than 450 people worldwide.
Bimblebox 153 Birds enthralls gallery visitors who love being surrounded by birds, sparking stories and conversations. It’s our story of our birds, how we experience them and sadly how we could lose them.
