Tamarama, Marks Park, memorial


The 'Bondi Memorial: Rise' is located in Marks Park, in the eastern suburb of Tamarama. It was designed by artist John Nicholson and installed in 2022 to honour the victims of the gay hate murders and violence in Sydney from the 1970s to 1990s. The stone terraces replicate the exact topography of the rock face strata of the cliffs below Marks Park where a number of gay men were thrown to their deaths. This memorial also serves to raise greater community awareness of the issue of LGBTQ hate crimes, promote the continuing need to pursue the truth and justice, and serve as a reminder of the importance of valuing and celebrating diversity in our community.

Tamarama, skywriting

A small plane was skywriting over Marks Park, in the eastern suburb of Tamarama during the 24th Sculpture by the Sea exhibition. The plane's acrobatics were breathtaking but the strong winds did not give the expelled smoke a chance to form a full message. This was presumably being filmed by a drone which was captured here in the smoke trail.
