Bargara’s Mosaic Artwork

The mosiacs are the work of a team of volunteers headed by Bargara local Paul Perry.

Paul said the artwork was part of a much bigger project he was working on to help beautify the region, which all started with a passion for displaying art in quirky, public places. 

The wall is 22 metres long and one and a half metres high.The front panel of the wall features a wave and sunrise with a surfing turtle while the back panel features a large turtle.

Paul said he has had over 100 volunteers of all ages help with people from around Australia and the USA, Britian, Tunisia and Mexico posting their home made fish to him.

Mosaics have been a popular art form in several cultures around the world. The earliest known mosaics were found in a Mesopotamian temple dating back to the 3rd millennium BC.

Some of the mosaics on the wall feature in these photos by Robyn Weber.
