Three new exhibitions will be presented in Bundanon Homestead.

When No Birds Sing, Ruth Maddison

Photographer Ruth Maddison was caught in the vortex of the fires at Eden and recorded the drama of dark skies and the role of local evacuation centres.

This exhibition is the new series of photographs captured by Maddison during this period.
