About Four Winds
four winds festival natural amphitheatre
The Four Winds is held every second Easter in the very beautiful Four Winds outdoor amphitheatre, nine kilometres south of the small township of Bermagui, on the far south coast of New South Wales.
In the sixteen festivals held since 1991, Four Winds has offered its audiences the opportunity to hear some of the best Australian and international musicians playing fine classical and contemporary works, in programs drawn from a wide diversity of musical and cultural traditions.
The festivals have established a reputation for excellence in music that is enhanced by being performed in a magical site, where artists, winds, birds, even on occasion a Four Winds frog, all contribute to the proceedings.

Four Winds is best known for it's biennial Festival AND our work with our community throughout the year to encourage participation in the development and production of creative and musical practice.
This includes our Inspiring Program, which has developed and encouraged a network of existing musical educators in the region.
