Album Description

With an abundance of quiet creeks and streams flowing through a variety of forest types, the Royal National Park is a place where I like to find solitude. I grew up in a town adjacent to this reserve, and over the years I have spent countless hours exploring its habitats and biodiversity. Sitting by a tranquil stream, listening to the dawn chorus is a wonderful way to relax. This album has been created to share the experience.

All of the tracks were recorded in the Hacking River valley, around the Forest Path, Lady Carrington Drive and Red Cedar Flat.
