immerse yourself in landscape and sound
The existing walk between the Table Cape lookout and the lighthouse has been enhanced with a geo location triggered sound walk. Rachel Meyers, a renowned Tasmanian sound artist, composer and musician has a passion for listening deeply to the land, allowing us to capture the sound of this ancient geological structure, Table Cape, in ways that are not humanly possible. Rachel has combined these “listenings” of Table Cape and its surrounds with an original composition she has made for this project to create a multi-sensory walk that takes in the views, flora and fauna of table cape. Rachel’s soundtrack, divined and inspired from the geology and surrounds itself is accessed through a downloadable app for a mobile device that tracks your location on the walk and triggers the soundscape as you wander into specific geolocated parts of the walk. It is best enjoyed with headphones but can be played through your device. The walk starts at the Table cape lookout car park, and the QR code for the Echoes app can be downloaded onto your device. Alternatively the app can be downloaded below, prior to arrival. The walk takes approximately 30 minutes one way taking your time to enjoy the sensory experience. It is free of charge and available at anytime. It is being launched as part of the Tourism Tasmania OFF Season Winter Campaign.

As an instrumentalist, Rachel has recorded several albums and toured nationally, performing at festivals around the country including A Festival Called Panama, Dark MOFO, MONA FOMA, National Folk Festival, Cygnet Folk Festival, Maldon Folk Festival, and more.
The app for the sound walk can be downloaded either here via the ECHOES link above, or at the start of the Table Cape Walk-either at the lookout, or the lighthouse entry points. To make the most of the experience, we recommend you listen with headphones, and remove these on your return journey to allow you to listen to the natural ambiance on your return. You can of course listen without headphones, just with the speaker of your phone.
