Toorale National Park, southwest of the township of Bourke in northwestern NSW, comprises of 91,000 hectares of land with frontages to the Darling and Warrego Rivers. Trigger engaged with stakeholders, including the traditional land owners, the Kurnu-Baarkandji, NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, and the Aboriginal Joint Management Committee, to develop an Interpretation and Revitalisation Strategy. Following that, Trigger created an extensive suite of sculptural and digital interpretives, located across the park, and implemented over 3 years to create an experience that inspires and engages visitors. Content and design involved close collaboration with the Kurnu-Baarkandji people.
The era of the paddlesteamers, which used the Darling as a route to transport goods, is evoked by a sculptural piece which features the image of a paddlesteamer on laser cut corten steel, which appears to float on the rippling water of the Darling. This is a playful way to communicate the experience of this once busy transport corridor of puffing paddlesteamers.
