Public Art and Urban Design Trail

​​Discover Western Australia’s unique Public Art and Urban Design projects on your next journey with our map.

We have commissioned Public Art and Urban Design on a number of transport infrastructure projects. These artworks contribute to Western Australia’s unique culture and environment, improve way-finding and enhance the travel experience for all road users.

In celebration of these artworks, their artists, and the communities who helped create them, we have designed an interactive map to guide you to each location.

So whether you call WA home or you’re just passing through, take time to discover some of our inspirational pieces on your next journey.        

This page will be updated with new artwork as projects are completed, so be sure to check back regularly.

Artist: Gary Aitken

Inspired by the iconic Mandurah ferris wheel, this sculpture comprises floating circles with circular perforations that interact with light to create shadows that
continuously transform the artwork.

The orange and blue colours of the sculpture refer to the sun, water and sky.

It's located on the western side of the interchange and serves as a way finding device from the freeway to the Mandjoogoordap Road.



Artist: Rick Vermey

The artwork consists of two panels - one on the north-east corner of Murdoch Drive and another outside the Murdoch Hospice. The graphically pic-perforated corten steel sheet-metal panels represent a selection of birds, animals, insects and plant species found in the nearby Quenda Wetland environment. 

Movement is created as the positioning of the birds seemingly shows them ‘in flight’.

Sun Mandala

Artist: Gary Aitken

This applied relief sculptural artwork is inspired by the Mandurah sunset and is based on a geometric mandala design that radiates out from the centre of a two hundred metre long coloured concrete retaining wall. 

The wall is located adjacent to a painted artwork on Gordon Road Bridge which has a complementary theme.
