Four Winds held its first concert on 7 April 1991, in the very same landscape that would later be expanded and developed to its renowned current day facilities called Nature’s Concert Hall. Over the next 25 years, this initial event, which originally drew an audience of 200 people, grew in scope and scale, attracting thousands of music lovers to its biennial Four Winds Easter Festival.
The organisation is renowned for presenting world-class performances from leading national and international musicians in its unique natural setting of 30 acres of open bushland on New South Wales’ stunning far south coast.
In 2014 the Four Winds site was transformed into the Nature’s Concert Hall, home to two purpose-built performance spaces – the 2,000 person capacity outdoor Sound Shell and the 200 seat Windsong Pavilion.
These permanent facilities have enabled Four Winds to expand to a year-round program comprising the now annual Easter festival, concerts and performances, community events, artist residencies, music and environmental education programs.
