A place to rest and reflect on Kaurna culture

Fri, 31 May, 2024

The first rest node on the Shared Use Path on the Main South Road Duplication project (Stage 1) has been constructed in recent weeks.

The rest node provides a place for cyclists and walkers to stop and rest during their journeys and contemplate the Aboriginal—specifically Kaurna—history of the area.

The Maslin Creek rest node is situated just south of the agricultural underpass — near the intersection of Thomas and Branson Roads and Main South Road.

Features of the rest node that have been recently installed include the fish sculptures, that have a left to right movement in the breeze.

The installation continues the story of traditional fishing that has been told on other structures on duplication project.

Fish from local waters were an important food source for the traditional Kaurna people.

This important story continues on the Coast to Vines underpass, Pedler Creek bridge and the Port Road bridge at Aldinga.

Another rest node on Main South Road will be constructed near Pedler Creek bridge in the coming months.

The fish will swing back and forth in the breeze
