Travel Journal: southern NSW

The Bundian Way carves through wild and historic country in the South East of NSW. It's 380 kilometres of rugged, rural and majestic terrain that inspires and motivates.

Several ANU School of Art undergraduate students trekked along the ancient Indigenous trail that runs from Mount Kosciuszko to the coast as part of an elective unit.

They shared ideas and created works for a special exhibition, Beyond Balawan: Aesthetic responses to the Bundian Way.

Here two students - NED BOTT and SALLY MUMFORD - describe their experiences.
