The Story of Quirindi

Text taken from the Australian Silo Art Trail website.

The art on the silo tells the story of the Liverpool Plains region (past, present and future). It was inspired by First Nations stories which tell how animals worked with the indigenous community as helpers and protectors.

The northern side of the silo features Yurrandaali, the tree goanna, totem of the Liverpool Plains traditional lands, who is the protector of the lands.

To the right, the grey Bandaarr Kangaroo stands tall as the wise knowledge holder, it would always be on the lookout and would sense any danger or troubles. It would hop off at great speeds to warn the other animals of the danger.
