Our people have lived on this country for thousands of years and have seen the change of the landscape and the arrival of people from many nations. We are a sharing culture. We share our customs, traditions and stories, ancient stories.

The present sea levels here today came about 7000 years ago. There are 21 known stories across different sites along the costline of Australia that retell this event, describing the changes of the landscape as the sea levels rose. One is from my home country, Quandamooka country.

It is truly amazing to live in a country and be part of a culture where stories have survived thousands of years where there was no written form of recording but only through our art, songs, dances, these stories have survived. May these stories live on for many more generations to come.

The oval shapes grouped together represent these stories and the area they came from. Also represented with the circles are some of the different groups throughout our country. Western, central desert, far north, and southern mobs. The lines connect us all. We are one people. One mob. We are still here and our culture is still strong. The central three circles represent The Creator, Biami. The central being to all things. Creator of the heavens and the earth and this beautiful country of ours that we live in.

Absolutely beautiful

I bought this as a gift for my partner and she loved it. The material was soft and flowy which is perfect for those hot summer days under the sun. The design is also beautiful, something I know that will be treasured for a long time to come. Incredibly satisfied with my purchase
