Mountains, Mud and Migrants

A history of West Moonah/Springfield — told through photography, sound, artwork and interviews

Developed in 2008/09, this project tells stories of a failed ‘Garden City’ development, the post war migrants who purchased land to build their homes, the mud and sewerage legacy of the failed subdivision, and finally the tenacity and commitment of a community to their home and suburb as they fought for their right to the basic services that the rest of Hobart enjoyed.
