This work was composed to mark the Bicentennial of the settlement at Risdon Cove and Hobart Town in 2004. The work seeks to represent two contrasting Tasmanian locations, both of which hold significance to the composer, and Tasmanians in general. The Truganni Memorial on Bruny Island, to the south of Tasmania, is situated on a small hill on the neck of the island - a place where shearwaters and penguins gather in great numbers each evening. Peoples Park in Strahan on the west coast of Tasmania is a simple park which hosted family picnics, brass band performances and happy relaxed weekends at the turn of the 20th century.
