Sharing local Aboriginal stories

Have you seen the brand new Ngaraba-aan Trail signage at MM Beach? Or the
new sandstone and steel sculptures designed by Aboriginal artists Aunty Lorraine
Brown and Chris Edwards? The sculptures tell the story of competition for land and
sea in Port Kembla from the early 1900s to pre-World War 2. As the metal industry
in the area boomed, it had an impact on the sea around Port Kembla and reduced
the fish catches relied on by the local Aboriginal community. The sculpture’s
carved sandstone bases were created at Coomaditchie Hall by Aunty Lorraine
Brown and Aunty Narelle Thomas.
