Judges Comments:

“This is a lovely example of a well-thought out and well-rounded project. Every step was considered. The graphics and choice of recycled timber suit the project so well. The colour is perfect, even the ants that happened to be using one signage post (about fauna) help us see the value of sharing fauna stories.”

“The project’s aims and objectives were clear: to share the wonder and beauty of the valley, while simultaneously directing visitors to alternative places to enjoy the valley, and offer tips to assist in protecting the place. There was a clear objective that the project would include Indigenous input, and this was met in a substantial and fun way – love learning language and place names.”

“The use of both video and audio is a fantastic way of taking visitors further into exploring the unique heritage of the place.”

“The project clearly articulated the process undertaken with community to help build the project… It is commendable that such a small community would believe that their heritage is valuable and worth protecting, and find funds to demonstrate this.”

“Beautiful signage, lovely presentation using recycled timber. A high quality project with smart use of technology to engage.”
