NESTING TURTLES OF MORETON BAY

Turtles are one of many creatures of sea life that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups have a strong connection with. It may be a totem, creation story or a food source. For thousands of years, we have maintained strong relationships with the land, sea, and sky. Turtles visit the shoreline of Moreton Bay, from Redcliffe to Bribie Island and make their journey across the sand to nest and lay their eggs. The symbols along the sides and middle with circles joined by lines represent the continuous journey that the turtles make to lay their eggs in the nest, before heading back out to sea and represent the journey that their babies will travel towards the water where they will learn to swim and fend for themselves as they grow.
