Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk
The Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk features a series of stunning contemporary Aboriginal sculptures lining the Wagirra Trail from Kremur Street to Wonga Wetlands.
Eleven sculptures created by local Aboriginal artists have been installed along the five kilometres of trail. Each sculpture is accompanied by interpretative panels and videos available via smartphone, which promise to make the Wagirra Trail a cultural and tourism destination for years to come.
How to access the walk
The Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk starts at the Kremur Street Boat Ramp. Kremur Street runs off Padman Drive in West Albury.
A powerful concept of respect, to be gentle, polite, honour and do slowly
Wiradjuri Law demands that we have profound respect for each other and we do things slowly and with care. The country itself is our nurturer. The land and the river provide all. The fertility of the earth is at a highpoint when the Milawa Billa runs. Aboriginal people are drawn to the river, known to them as Milawa Billa (Murray River).
The Milawa is an old man of Aboriginal lore, telling a thousand stories, connecting communities along it's 2400 kilometres.
The sculptures along the Yindyamarra Sculptural Walk resonate with the Milawa lore. Connection to the river is fundamental to all these visual dialogues. The Milawa holds the local Indigenous history and inspires the cultural practices.
