Bogong Centre for Sound Culture

The Bogong Centre for Sound Culture (BCSC) was established in 2010 to investigate the relationship between industry and the natural environment through projects that focus on acoustic ecology and environmental sustainability. It supports cultural initiatives investigating the history and ecology of the Australian Alps including research, festivals, commissioned artworks, masterclasses and Artist in Residency programs.

The BCSC is located at Bogong Village, 325 kilometres North-East of Melbourne and is situated at an altitude of 800 meters in the Alpine National Park. The village was established in the late 1930s to service the first hydroelectric scheme in mainland Australia. More recently it has become a popular site for alpine sports, recreation and ecotourism.
