Two large signs were developed for National Parks and Wildlife for the Wooli section of the Yuraygir Coastal Walk. The panels are part of a long-term project that included community consultation workshops. The tourist information sign pictured below is designed as a meeting place for those walking the ‘Yuraygir Coastal Walk’ and boat operator. The themes and key messages are drawn from the community workshop and survey.
Located near the Post Office in Wooli it is an important sign as the Wooli Wooli River is the largest river crossed by the Yuraygir Coastal Walk. It can be treacherous for swimmers so walkers need to head across to the river from here to meet the river crossing operator.

A lino print by artist Bronwyn Rodden was a delightful inclusion providing relief from the photographic images. A wonderful story accompanies the lino print … “There was a mob of seagulls (…) and in amongst these seagulls, there was this one that was battling, really battling (and) when he got to the boat it was a young galah”
