Lullabies of the Fleurieu

Lullaby Project Australia

March-April 2022

Different towns across the Fleurieu region became designated Lullaby Project Australia locations. Parents, families and caregivers in each town collectively composed individual and groups songs with the guidance of specially-trained Lullaby artists. Each song reflected and celebrated the local community and area - a lifelong gift for all local young children and families.

Lullabies of the Fleurieu songbook was compiled and illustrated at the end of the project for all to use and enjoy for generations to come. Each lullaby was performed at comunity concerts in Yankalilla and Goolwa, before being professionally recorded at Paomino Studios, Myponga.

Hackham West

Lullaby Project Australia

June 2021

In a year that has brought many challenges and experiences of prolonged isolation, we recognise the vital role that music can play in community recovery, connection and positivity. 


Through a community grant from Australian Neighbourhood Houses & Centres Association, we delivered a brand new project for parents of babies in Hackham West and surrounding communities.


Parents of babies came together across a series of songwriting sessions to create, record and perform a personal lullaby for their baby with our team of Lullaby Project Artists. Hush, Hush, was co-written as a gift for all babies and carers in the community.

Artist Development 

Lullaby Project Australia


Lullaby Project Australia is committed to developing and building a diverse network of Lullaby Project artists across Australia. In 2020 the first introductory training day was launched, open to professional musicians with an interest in creative music leadership and community collaboration. This initial program was led by local and international leaders in the field and explored the background, scope and impact of the Lullaby Project worldwide. Participants came together to develop key tools, share experiences, and build vital knowledge for working as creative music leaders within community settings.
