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.
