In 1996, nationally renowned Indigenous artist, the late Ron Hurley, worked with six local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to study and research the Indigenous culture of the Boondall Wetlands. Together, they developed and reinforced their cultural identity by creating a series of 18 contemporary totems symbolising various aspects of their culture. The Nurri Millen Totem Trail forms part of Council's public art collection.
