Located within Marie Bashir Park in the centre of town, the Wiradjuri Honour Wall stands to honour the people of the Narrungdera Clan who have passed, and the Wiradjuri people of Narrandera Shire.

The rammed earth material of the Wiradjuri Honour Wall has been used to signify the natural earth colours of the locally important Narrandera Sandhills area and the colours of the Aboriginal flag. The design of the wall itself was based on a concept provided by Mr Dean Ingram.

The aerial view of the wall is symbolic of a meeting place which has significant meaning in Aboriginal culture. The open-sided nature of the curved structure is designed to be welcoming with a raised platform to enable future events and presentations to occur at the site.

This multi-staged project has been a number of years in the making with stage one involving the wall construction and paving and stage two proposed as including public artworks and possible sculpture to be placed on the currently vacant pedestal.
