Narrogin Poles

NARROGIN POLES Project Overview Mobile


In 2011 CAN partnered with NowGreen to reinvigorate a series of poles that had been originally installed along the Gnarojin creek in 1993 and 1994, as part of the Town of Narrogin’s Noongar Revival project, which cleared the area and created a new walking trail and seating.

The intricate carvings and culturally inspired paintings on the poles have given this section of the creek a new lease on life. The 2011 project was facilitated by public artist Jahne Rees, NowGreen coordinator Graeme Miller and Aboriginal artist Ross Storey.

The NowGreen participants each designed one of the poles and the project resulted in a series of vibrant poles, launched as part of the CAN Wheat Beats event held at the Narrogin Skate Park in 2011.

Participants received accreditations in Conservation and Land Management for their participation.
