A PLACE marker that shares an important Quandamooka storyline was recently unveiled at Point Lookout on North Stradbroke Island.
Created by Quandamooka artist Delvene Cockatoo-Collins, the artwork marks the gorge walk trail head and features three, 2.5 metre tall eugarie shells that visitors can walk through and around.
The place marker also includes dual naming for Mulumba (Point Lookout), and the artist statement about the work.
Ms Cockatoo-Collins said eugarie shells were symbolic of people coming together.
"They mark places of gathering for Quandamooka people and the new place marker honours those places of gathering and those who gathered; and will mark the place of ongoing gatherings," she said.
The eugaries artwork is the result of a partnership between Redland City Council and Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC) to create place markers of cultural significance at Mulumba and Pulan (Amity Point).
Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones said the place marker gave visitors an insight into the Quandamooka culture, and their ancient connection to country.

Redland City Council CEO Andrew Chesterman said the recent installation of the sculpture followed the placing of the Mirriginpah (sea eagle) artwork at Pulan (Amity Point) by Belinda Close, also a Quandamooka artist, in February.
