Tourism stories

Something to crow about

Imagine walking through an ancient forest at sunset, as a cacophony of birds swamps your senses. The noise of thousands of ravens bellowing out from tall trees. This is another unique MONA experience, but one that’s been especially designed to help the bushfire ravaged Huon Valley get back on its feet. Armed with a $2 million grant, MONA is using art to lure tourists back to the region, and the raven symphony is the first exhibit. The sounds of the birds ring out from waterproof speakers mounted 15 metres high in old growth forest at Hastings Caves, south of Hobart. Poet David Manson, described it perfectly to ABC News: “It’s just amazing to be out as the dark is settling in the forest, you really feel like you have returned to something primeval from the beginnings of time.”
