About The Event
In the early 1970s, a single mother and her four children find themselves alone on the east coast of New South Wales. They join the ‘Back to the Earth Movement’ at the idyllic land known as ‘Tralfamadore’. The family choose a spot on a hill bound by a river and creek, building a home using river stones and found objects. They sustain themselves on homegrown produce and fresh air.
Told in a series of ethereal vignettes, The Road to Tralfamadore is Bathed in River Water is a whimsical memoir that depicts a childhood full of both naïvety and wisdom during an era of radical social change.
