Yerrin Bilk - William Barak

“Yerrin Biik” means “Bush Country” in the Wurundjeri Woi-Wurrung language. "Yerrin Bilk" is a collaboration between Murrup Biik Public Art, an initiative of Wurundjeri Elder Aunty Kim Wandin and Christine Joy, and renowned street artist Jimmy Dvate. Yerrin Biik will encapsulate the rich history of Mooroolbark, celebrating its local flora and fauna, while honouring its Indigenous roots and the enduring spirit of its people.

The work consisting of a number of murals, will be wrapped around the Mooroolbark Library, nestled into the gardens of the surrounding Hookey Park.

This mural features William Barak. Aunty Kim chose to include William Barak (her Great Uncle x 4), to honour his journeys over this land from Coranderrk to the city to advocate for his people.
