The local geological feature known as Pigeon House Mountain was named by Lt James Cook on his voyage up the coast in 1770. Didthul is a Budawang word for the same mountain and also describes a woman’s breast, which is a far more poetic appellation for the feature which dominates our coast.
The Rotary Club of Milton-Ulladulla is holding a choral competition in September for a capella choirs called Under Didthul. Any surplus funds from the event will be directed one half to Rotary’s projects in the area and one half to the Alzheimer’s Australia Dementia Research Foundation.
VENUES and ACCESSIBILITY
- Heats and finals will be held in the auditorium of the newly built Dunn-Lewis Centre on the southern outskirts of Ulladulla, about 1.5km from the centre of town. The singers lounge is also in the same building.
- The venue for the heats and finals and for the singers lounge is fully compliant with AS 1428 Design for Access and Mobility, including compliant parking spaces. There is a lift and walking distances are quite short.
- Other venues for pop-ups and concerts are all public spaces, and so likely to be Access compliant.
- In addition, we will provide chairs at performances for those who may need a rest.
ACCOMMODATION AND TRANSPORT
- Choirs must cover all expenses of their travel and stay in Milton-Ulladulla during the competition.
- It is anticipated that participants will have their own vehicles.
- Links will be provided on the website to access transport and accommodation providers but, if help is required with accommodation or transport, please advise the organisers as soon as possible.
