Restoring landscapes across the Mount Alexander Region

Friends of the Box-Ironbark photo show at Tog’s Cafe

Posted on 12 June, 2012 by Connecting Country

The latest FOBIF Mamunya exhibition opened at Tog’s Cafe in Lyttleton Street, Castlemaine on Friday 8 June. It runs till the 13 July. The exhibition continues a tradition the Friends started in 1999 with their first Mamunya festival. This word comes from a Dja Dja Wurrung chant, ‘pata, mamunya, jirarunga,’ meaning, ‘wait a while, don’t touch it, growing up.’

This time twelve photographers have contributed their photos. The images highlight the often overlooked beauty and intriguing characteristics of our local flora and fauna. Five of the 26 exhibition photos can be viewed in a slideshow on the FOBIF site.
