Mural Project

The Aboriginal mural lines the wall between Taree Service Centre and Purfleet.

The mural was funded as a Work for the Dole project conducted in partnership with Purfleet Taree Aboriginal Land Council and Jobactive providers lead by Nortec Staffing Solutions.

Earthy tones and pops of colour come together to create underwater scenes. Crabs and turtles flit throughout the scenes and the Biripi totem of a shark has its own dedicated panel.

The work is intricate, with dot painting and patterned lines featuring inside boomerangs and other shapes.

The mural was officially launched on December 15 2016.

PTLALC acknowledge the traditional custodians of our boundaries. The Biripi, we pay our respects to elders past and present.
