"Ourimbah was the first and in my mind only real festival Australia ever had... Sunbury was about the music of our time, Ourimbah was about the time." Billy Thorpe, 2004."No, we are not freaks, we are human beings grasping at a freedom, and for one weekend it wasn't simply a dream."Wendy Saddington, 'Go-Set' Feb 1970."Once Around the Sun takes its place with Monterey Pop and Woodstock as a memorable monument to a lost world, when barriers were broken and love was a living thing." Roger Steffens, Columnist 'The Beat' USA."We're attempting a new form of film, a non-linear creation which moves in distance, not time - in real symbols - not symbolic reality." Gordon Mutch, 'Go-Set' Feb 1970.
