Sound Effects

I’d particularly like to thank:

  • Kangaroovindaloo from freesound.org, who provided me with so many of the Australian sound effects I needed. I lost a lot of my own bush atmospheres and he saved my bacon!
  • Andrew McLeod and the Doonoch Dancers from Nowra for permission to record and use their dancing. They’re a very entertaining, high energy Aboriginal dance troupe, highly recommended!
  • My speakers:
    • Amanda Annabel
    • Noal Annabel
    • Bill Stallard
    • Ivo Ahlquist
    • Ian Battersby

Sound effects were sourced from the following places for the Birdsville Track Audio Tour:
