The Basin Tea Tree Project - Community Mural

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Our community was shocked and devastated when the coastal tea trees at Belmore Basin were vandalised on 15 October 2020.

Played on by generations of children and providing shade and beauty at our harbour, these trees will be monitored for 18 months for any chance of new growth and survival. Read the FAQs for more information on our response to the vandalism.

There was an outpouring of love for these trees and what they meant to people after the vandalism happened.

We invite you to share your memories of the trees to create a community mural that will be installed at the site.

You can:

  • Use the story tool to share photos, drawings, paintings, writing and we can all see them here
  • Or you can upload using the form and we will receive your contribution privately.

To help you:

  • There's a drawing template with instructions that anyone of any age can use
  • The example photo of Annie playing may bring back memories of moments spent in the beauty of these trees.

We will review all contributions and select some to be displayed on the mural.

By posting your story you give us permission to use it on the mural.

Before you participate please read Council's Privacy Policy.
