Cemetery Beach Playspace – Town of Port Hedland -
Remembering Our Past – Protecting Our Future. The design of the new Cemetery Beach Playspace was inspired by history, culture and the natural environment. Remembering Our Past makes connection to the SS Koombana cargo and mail carrying ship which was lost at sea during a tropical cyclone on the 20th of March 1912. Protecting Our Future makes connections to the unique and precious nesting habitat that exists along this stretch of coastline for the Flatback Turtles. Custom made replica sculptures of the Flatback Turtle and a nest of eggs encourages children to engage with these magical creatures and develop thoughts and ideas about how to protect them for future generations. Rich with play opportunities this new playspace is a hub of excitement for the Port Hedland community.
