The 6 and 8 Parramatta Square heritage wall is located in the 6PS lobby, adjacent to the Darcy Street entrance. This piece was designed by GML Heritage in collaboration with Leanne Mulgo Watson, a Darug artist and educator. The display concept is based on ‘Badu Baraya’, a story Leanee co-wrote with Darug artist and writer Jasmine Seymour and tells the story of the site’s heritage from Deep Time (c. 10,000 years ago) to present.
This heritage display shares stories from the history of the place. Once part of an ancient creek line, this landscape became home to many different people who grew, gathered and consumed food here.
As you follow the creek line, each pool reveals a bronze sculpture representing a phase of the place's history. The Aboriginal symbols etched into the wall tell the Badu Baraya story. Historical artefacts excavated on site are also on display.
