Shoalhaven City Council is encouraging residents to discover the new Callala Bay Art Walk, which was recently installed and proudly supported by the Callala Bay Community Association (BCA).
The Callala BCA secured State Government funding last financial year for the project, which has seen the incorporation of Indigenous artwork into the foreshore.
Mayor Amanda Findley said foreshore art walk project is about connecting our community and discovering more about your town and its heritage.
“The Callala Bay area has three new hand wood carved poles, a bench and an additional section of the shared pathway for the community to get out and explore,” said Clr Findley.
“Created by a local indigenous artist to display key features of the area, telling the story of Callala Bay and its beautiful marine life.
“The dolphin carving represents the pod of dolphins which frequent the bay, whilst the ripples display the mullet ‘schooling’ before being caught by local fisherman.”
“I encourage families looking for an opportunity to get outdoors with each other to head to Callala and enjoy the new additions.”
The Callala Bay Art Walk Project is best accessed by Marine Parade and Murray Street. On-street parking is available. This project is a collaborative approach between the people of Jerringa, Shoalhaven City Council, NSW Office Environment and Heritage and the Callala BCA.
