Indigenous art reduces single use plastics in Noosa

Noosa Visitors Centre, Noosa, Queensland

About the Project

Tourism Noosa in collaboration with Noosa Council and Unity Water have turned an O fountain into a stunning piece of indigenous art painted by local artist, Bianca Beetson.

Situated outside the architecturally designed Noosa Visitors Centre by Bark Architects, the colourful O fountain was selected due to its unique design and ability to put a spotlight on reducing plastic waste in the Noosa region.

The art was thoughtfully produced to represent the ocean and connected rivers and waterways around the Noosa region as well as Beetson’s matriarchal bloodline and connection to country. The use of colour symbolises the energy and feeling of summertime in the popular tourist destination, especially Hastings street where it is located.


Tourism Noosa’s Development Manager Juanita Bloomfield said installing the O fountain provided “the perfect mechanism to showcase Noosa’s commitment to becoming a plastic free destination”


“It will be a real drawcard and feature for Hastings Street and the architecturally designed information centre and surrounding garden area.”
