Wamarra is a Wiradjuri word meaning ‘to build’

The four half circles sitting outside the main circle represent the four Wamarra directors who look out for and care for the community.

The circles communicate the continual dissemination of ideas and development of skills through the power of sharing enabling diverse people to come together as one Wamarra community.


Wamarra language

We use ‘Wamarra’ respectfully as it succinctly expresses our vision for both the growth and development of Aboriginal people while contributing to building Victoria’s infrastructure projects.


Wamarra story

The artwork shows the relationship between Wamarra and its partners, clients and communities – creating meaningful and sustainable opportunities for Aboriginal people. The visual symbols used in the Wamarra artwork express the story of people coming together to create a community that respects and acknowledges who we are and the journey we are on. The Wamarra story gives us a deeper understanding of Aboriginal people, culture and aspirations.
