The Griffyns offer up a unique perspective on the First World War, by combining such unlikely bedfellows as music, football, history and social politics.

Four Winds Festival is more than just exquisite music. It’s more than just a gathering of some of the finest musicians from around the world.

It’s also about a very special place we call Nature’s Concert Hall; 30 acres of open and wooded parkland, an open-air amphitheatre with grassed tiers that drop gently down to a stage framed by a lake that reflects the changing colours of the sky and is home to the frogs that sing along.

The new Windsong Pavilion, a purpose-built indoor recital hall, is now ready and available for year-round events and performances. The completion of the Windsong Pavilion and the Sound Shell marks a new beginning for Four Winds and the opportunity for us to secure our place in Australia’s musical life and identity.

The site will become an important centre for our community, the region and beyond, where world-class cultural events will play out against the backdrop of our beautiful surroundings.
