Tue, 28 May, 2024

Kaurna artwork highlighting the rich history of fishing by First Nations people has been installed on the Coast to Vines underpass. The underpass travels under Main South Road and is part of the Coast to Vines Rail Trail.

On the eastern side of the underpass, walkers and cyclists can see an installation featuring a school of fish. A total of 23 steel fish have been installed on the entrance wall, the largest measuring 1.7 m in height.

People travelling through the underpass to the western side can see the second part of the installation, featuring two Kaurna fishers with traditional nets who are positioned to catch the ‘fish’.

The artwork has been developed as part of a co-design process involving Kaurna representatives, the Fleurieu Connections Alliance and urban design and landscape design company Tract.
