Story: Yalingbila Balgany
Yalingbila balgany, the whale is coming, watch her as she swims past heading north. It's whale migration season during June to November each year. Humpback whales travel north to the warmer waters in the colder months to have their offspring, then returning south with their young to Antarctica.
I come from Quandamooka country that's located on the coast of Brisbane. Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) is a great location for people from land to view these whales hoping to see them breach above the water. Yalingbilia is not our totem, however they're special visitors to our waters.
We welcome them every year. I view them as such majestic creatures which made me paint this whale under the night sky using these colours as it passes Quandamooka Country in the background. This is actually three circles presenting our clan groups Ngugi, Goenpul & Noonuccal.

MEET THE ARTIST
Aboriginal Quandamooka woman
Shara is an Australian Aboriginal contemporary artist from Quandamooka country, inspired by stories of her Elders, the generation from One Mile. “I want to remember them [my elders] by painting, so I can leave something for my daughter one day.” Shara’s paintings are her identity as a strong saltwater woman, her connection to family, sand and sea.
