You're bound to be awestruck 🤩 by these large sculptural “ᗷᗩGᑌ” as you drive along the foreshore 🌊 in Cardwell.

These Bagu stand like sentinels against the backdrop of Hinchinbrook Island 🏝 and are a demonstration of the culture of the Traditional Owners. The sculptures were inspired by the traditional fire-making 🔥 tools of the rainforest people of North Queensland. 🌴🌳

You can learn more about the history of this region and even purchase your own Bagu (albeit smaller versions) at the Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre.
