Gurrong dharrang, Scarred Tree

An exciting new development at the Yea Wetlands Discovery Centre is the recent installation of the Gurrong dharrang, Scarred Tree, artwork by Taungurung artist Sammy Trist. Located at the entrance to the Centre, the sculpture of a Eucalyptus tree features Indigenous line art and the Taungurung totems, Bundjil the wedge-tailed Eagle and Waang the Crow. This project was coordinated by the Honour the Taungurung Yea community group, including Taungurung Elder Aunty Angela ten Buuren, with funding from the Victorian Government’s COVID-19 Aboriginal Community Response and Recovery Fund.
