In keeping with the spirit of reconciliation that is spreading over the nation, Coorabell Hall Association members decided they wanted to do something to recognise the Bundjalung people.

“Everyone speaks the words,” said association president George Lewin.

“But we thought, how better to show our respect than to put Aboriginal art on our doors.”

The front doors have been painted by Bundjalung artists Lewis Walker and David Miller, and the artwork tells the creation story of the giant lizard that came from the ocean, of how one of her eggs became Julian Rocks, while around her a song line goes to the bora ring at Lennox Head, and a meeting place is surrounded by the healing colours of the rainbow.

“Gingi Wulla,” it announces: “Welcome.”
