Tooraweenah is aboriginal for “Home of the Brown Snake”
The traditional custodians of our ancient land describe it as a meeting place for the Wiradjuri, Kamilaroi & Wailwan nations.
Tooraweenah is not just a location to visit but a community to experience. A place where you can truly connect with the past and country Australias present.
Between the fires and the launch of covid, our family put a pin on the map of Australia, roughly halfway between where everyone lived. Travelling from Victoria, South Australia, NSW, And Queensland landed us in Tooraweenah. A spec of a town. But on our night walk, it had transformed into an abandoned movie set, a visual attractiveness I had not expected. An emotive scene: The stillness and street lighting created the most fantastic feeling of vastness, isolation, and presence at the same time. I fell in love with this little town that I had never heard of in the middle of nowhere.
