A wonderful relection from an artist who came to a painting retreat at Bunginderry Artist Camp quite a few years ago…….“I’ve been working hard on my property and trying to make it a better habitat for wildlife as the town expands towards me! Part of my effort I think began in Bunginderry – the pull of the land, the way people connect, the magic of landscapes and plants and animals and birds.” Nonie, Gympie, Qld.

Turning on the Christmas lights at Bunginderry isn’t quite as easy as it sounds. It takes a little more than just unravelling the cords from the box and looping all over the Christmas tree with the final flick of the switch at the wall.
I had to wait a long time to experience these Christmas lights. Mother nature has kept these colours a secret, hidden behind deep dark clouds. I have been waiting for the perfect moment to capture the skies and ‘switch’ on the Christmas lights of Bunginderry. Well worth it don’t you think?
Wishing you all happy days during the festive season.

Welcome all to the official site of the Bunginderry Artists’ Camps. Previously, this information has been published on Annabel Tully’s website amidst her distinctive, contemporary paintings of arid Australia.
Annabel Tully lives & works on Bunginderry, a cattle & sheep property west of Quilpie in south west Queensland. This property covers 180,000 acres and is typical of Australia’s arid inland with vast tracts of red dirt, open skies, acacia trees & a great absence of suburban and urban clutter.
Bunginderry Artists’ Camps provide an opportunity for artists of all levels to immerse themselves in this inspiring landscape.
