Beach to Birrabeen

In December 2016, the Fraser Island Defenders Organisation (FIDO) invited the Fraser Coast’s Regional Artists and Tutors group to accompany them during a BioBlitz on K’Gari (Fraser Island).

The BioBlitz brought together specialist scientists from a range of disciplines to undertake field studies to develop an inventory of the natural resources and species across a defined research area on K’Gari. Artists Gina Davey, Kelli McGregor, Valerie McIntosh, David Probyn and Jo Williams spent seven days immersed in this scientific enquiry. Beach to Birrabeen brings together a selection of artworks made in situ and in the studio that respond to the unique environment of K’Gari and the scientists’ fields of enquiry.
