The Stars Descend self-drive tour - Porongurup Range to Ravensthorpe

The Stars Descend is a vast trail of dance performances about climate action and hope, unfolding over five regional locations from 17 March – 1 April, 2023.

Performances in spectacular outdoor settings will celebrate the rich biodiversity and ongoing restoration along the Gondwana Link’s 1000km ecological pathway.

Chapter 3 of The Stars Descend with sunset on the Porongurup Range, when the stars surface out of the ancient granite and enter the mauve sky.  Here they meet the birdsong before gently falling into the water and floating towards the Fitzgerald Biosphere.

Created by the powerful First Nations choreographer, Sonya Stephen with sound design by Andy O’Neil, the performance ends with a community celebration at Twin Creeks Conservation Reserve hosted by Friends of Porongurup Range.

After the performance the journey through to Ravensthorpe and the Fitzgerald River region is across some of the botanically richest hotpots within the larger south-west hotspot. It’s an ever-changing kaleidoscope of Mallee, kwongkan (heathland), woodland and wetlands.
