Yaroma StoryPrint Page Print this page

A ceramic mosaic commemorates the original Moreton Bay Fig tree, a local icon 40metres high with a 2 metre trunk that was once part of a dense rainforest. The location was also an important Aboriginal site, a birthing tree, a food gathering site, a meeting place, a shelter for the homeless and an embodiment of the Yaroma story.

A reconciliation project for the 30th anniversary of the recognition of Aboriginal citizenship.
