This temporary artwork by First Nations artists Leanne Tobin and Shae Tobin (Darug), and Jason Wing (Biripi) is a collaborative painting, presented along a section of the Parramatta River bike path near Rydalmere Wharf.
Parramatta by Foot combines the used of stencilled and freehand painting to show images and texts in both Darug and English, relating to local aquatic wildlife and Indigenous fishing technologies. This painting explores the Darug people’s relationship with the Parramatta River.
