The signage plaques displayed are based on plant tags, containing information about what is planted, its use and messages of sustainability and respect of the environment.
ARTSCAPE facilitated the engagement and design process for Yutilliko - an Aboriginal Conservation Area west of Newcastle. The area is designed as a contemporary bush tucker garden. A central meeting space is visioned as ‘the coming together’ - with pathway arms branching off in various directions associated with view lines. The path lines
connect to planted bays of Indigenous species and type: Fruit, Vegetables, Spices, Medicinal and species used as tools.
The signage plaques displayed are based on plant tags, containing information about what is planted, its use and messages of respect of the environment. Sketches by Indigenous artist Gary Luke depict Aboriginal daily life at this location - where animals and plants were sought for cooking and coming together around the camp fire.
