Boggabilla Central School unveils ‘Connection to Country’

This month, we received a magnificent three-piece artwork called ‘Connection to Country’ created by Boggabilla Central School students under the guidance of Indigenous artist, Elenore Binge.

Inland Rail Indigenous Participation Advisor, Ashley Williams at Boggabilla Central School to unveil ‘Connection to Country’ artwork

Inland Rail will be built and operated on the traditional lands of many Indigenous nations. To show our respect, we commissioned Boggabilla Central School to create Indigenous artwork which represents the Toomelah/Gomeroi connection to country, stories of local history, journeys and community connection.

Twenty children from various grades worked together with Indigenous artist, Elenore Binge using traditional symbols, colours and techniques to create art that will be proudly displayed in our Toowoomba office and reproduced to wrap around an Inland Rail vehicle.

This is just one of the ways we’re working with local, Indigenous communities to create opportunities for participation and recognise their inherent connection to their traditional lands.
