Koora-Yeye-Boordawan-Kalyakoorl (Past-Present-Future-Forever)

Landmarks and Buildings

The sculpture Koora-Yeye-Boordawan-Kalyakoorl (Past-Present-Future-Forever), has been constructed in limestone, concrete and aluminium, and creates a powerful statement at the end of the main ferry jetty.

The nine-metre-high sculpture, depicting a Noongar warrior and breaching whale, puts the finishing touch to a range of improvements and upgrades to embrace the Island’s cultural heritage and ensure the long-term sustainability of Western Australia’s beloved tourist destination.

The sculpture is the work of Western Australian artists Sharyn Egan and Jahne Rees who have worked on the installation since April, with significant input from the Whadjuk Noongar community.
