Singing from Country is a project which aims to inspire songwriters, choirs and other community members to learn about, appreciate and celebrate Country, reclaiming our love of land. The focus is on the shires of Hepburn, Mount Alexander and Greater Bendigo - regional areas, which fall in the southeast corner of Dja Dja Wurrung Country.
