Wagirra Trail and Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk
Hire a bike or lace up your walking shoes to explore the Murray River pathway, a 15 kilometre (return) trail that links the Wonga Wetlands with the South Albury Trail through blissful riverside parks among soaring red gums. There are plenty of places to stop for a picnic or enjoy the view.
Above all, make a beeline for the five-kilometre Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk between Kremur Street and the Wonga Wetlands. Here, 15 sculptures crafted by Aboriginal artists tell age-old First Nations stories through contemporary art – each comes with an interpretative sign revealing their significance. You can also unlock additional videos via your smartphone.
Pause at Michael Quinn’s Family Gathering, a sculpture symbolising the importance of family unity and Indigenous connection to the land; and Ruth Davys’ Bogon Moth Migration, an installation revealing how Aboriginal communities would feast on these winged delicacies. There is also Tamara Murray’s larger-than-life stainless-steel Reconciliation Shield; Kianna Edwards’ steel and concrete Goanna; and the Maya Fish Trap sculpture, the combined work of Uncle Ken (Tunny) Murray, Darren Wighton and Andom Rendell.
