Tempe, Story Poles

The Story Poles are an art installation in Kendrick Park along the northern shore of the Cooks River, in the southern suburb of Tempe. They were created by local students from Marrickville West and Dulwich Hill Primary Schools, as well as Marrickville and Dulwich Hill High Schools under the tutelage of a local Aboriginal artist.


  1. In the past I might have thought the idea of story poles was a bit strange, till I saw the fabulous bollards in Geelong. Now I think poles can be absolutely artistic.

  2. They look quite interesting, and I am quite curious to know the meaning of the motifs used...

  3. You do find the most unusual items to photograph.

    1. Thanks, Linda. I'm always on the lookout for interesting stuff.

  4. Nice stark aboriginal influenced poles. I like them but wouldn't bring them in connection with murals but more as art pieces themselves.

  5. I am glad that school kids did this and it serves a good purpose - to beautify the local park.
    The river in the background is inviting.
    Can I expect Crocs there? :)
    Have a Wonderful Week!
    Peace :)

  6. Looks like tall stories to me. Tom The Backroads Traveller
