The title of the work is taken from the aboriginal name for 'where the beech tree grows'.

The work is in one movement and through-composed in several sections in various modal minor tonalities and varying time signatures.

The piece begins with a cello figure representing the sound of a digeridoo chanting 'binna burra'. The 'beech tree grows' motif appears throughout the work in different guises.

Apart from the melodies, there are intriguing rhythms and contemporary jazz harmonies.
