essence of place

From intimate nooks in forests and rock pools, to vast panoramas of mountains and coast, ‘Essence of Place’ takes you on a journey into the majesty and secrets of the Gippsland landscape. Husband and wife team Nicky De Gruchy and Peter Baird have filmed and composed original music coming directly from their connection to these beautiful places. The intention is to create a relaxing and inspiring experience that takes you into the essence of these landscapes where ever you may be.
