Kabi Kabi inspiration for new playground
The Kabi Kabi First Nation people have provided the inspiration for a playground upgrade that is underway at Muller Park in Bli Bli.
A culturally significant site with a long history of Aboriginal and later South Sea Islander occupation, Muller Park’s new playground design has been based on the animals and materials used in traditional day-to-day life by the Kabi Kabi people.
Muller Park was a known gathering area for local Kabi Kabi with middens and other artifacts located on the site.
The playground, which has been designed in collaboration with the Kabi Kabi people, is being relocated to the middle of the park, near the recently constructed celebration shelter and toilet facilities.”
