There are all types of public art you can find in your travels in South Australia from wall murals, to huge, impressive, silo paintings and colourful mosaics. Unknowingly I have been finding mosaic works by a particular artist over a few years and didn’t know they were by the same person until I looked into my latest find at Clayton Bay.
Tucked away off the busy Goolwa Terrace is an interesting park full of Australian plants native to the area and a pathway leading through them, dotted with interpretive signage. The signs explain how the plants were used by the local indigenous Ngarrindjeri people for food and medicine. The park was created in 2007 as a joint project between the Alexandrina Council, the Ngarrindjeri people and local artists and is intended to bring people into a welcoming and healing space to learn a bit of history as you meander through.
