Enjoy the Wirangu Interpretive signs

Recently the District Council of Streaky Bay have erected eleven new interpretive signs around the coastline of the Chain of Bays. You can see them at Sceale Bay, Surfers Beach, Yanerbie, Speeds Point, Smooth Pool, The Granites, Tractor Beach, Gibson Peninsula, Cape Bauer, Back Beach, and Baird Bay. Pictures of the new signs are on the Chain of Bay's Facebook page. To see them, go to the home page and click on the Facebook icon at the bottom left.

The artwork on the signs was created by Wirangu artist Susie Betts. The text was written by the Friends of Sceale Bay's Bob Minnican, and approved by the Australian Government Caring for our Country Project Working Group. This group consisted of members of the major stakeholders of the CFOC project: the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Wirangu elders, Friends of Sceale Bay, and the District Council of Streaky Bay

Enjoy reading about the meaning of these beautiful places to the Wirangu people, and learn about the flora and fauna, geology and history. Sometimes signs can be stolen or damaged, so if you notice one missing, please report it to the District Council of Streaky Bay.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources at Point Labatt have provided another interpretative sign at Point Labbatt. This sign was designed and created by Wirangu artist Suzie Betts.
