Brewarrina turns waste into fine art

Date posted: 11 July 2013

Yellowbelly fish sculptures made entirely from recycled cans and scrap metal have been showcased in two western New South Wales towns.

They were constructed by members of the Bourke and Brewarrina Aboriginal communities and were recently unveiled in the two towns to coincide with NAIDOC week.

'These twin fish sculptures were a community education project supported by the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) and Netwaste, to harness people's imagination and raise awareness of just how much rubbish we all throw away,' OEH Chief Executive Officer Sally Barnes said.
