Our city and our stories are celebrated and commemorated through public artworks across Mandurah.

Through an 'open gallery' of 60+ commissioned public artworks, temporary and permanent, we recognise the stories that are unique to our city. Many works are discreet and await discovery by a sharp set of eyes whilst those of a larger scale can activate a view.

They connect us to this place, and each other, and reflect who we are and what is important to us. For instance, Yaburgurt Winjan was a significant figure in the Bindjareb Noongar community, known by settlers as George Winjan. To commemorate the centenary of Yaburgurt's passing, our community and the City, supported with a Royalties for Regions grant, commissioned the stunning spherical artwork, which represents the six Noongar seasons, from Peter Farmer and Little Rhino Designs. The artwork has pride of place in front of the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre and sits opposite Winjan's Camp in Halls Head. 

Following the release of the 2023-28 Arts and Culture Strategy, the City of Mandurah is reviewing its public art policy to ensure that our collection reflects the legacy and future growth of Mandurah's community. You can read the current policy here, or contact artsculture@mandurah.wa.gov.au to enquire further about public art across the city.
