Bunjil Eagle Relocation, Docklands

Location: Docklands, Vic

Client: Lendlease

Date:  April 2018

The eagle sculpture, a Docklands landmark since 2002, was inspired by Bunjil, the eaglehawk that is regarded as the spirit creator of the Kulin nations, which include the Wurundjeri people.

The 25-metre eagle designed by Melbourne sculptor Bruce Armstrong is located in the median strip of Wurundjeri Way. The site is currently under construction and after much discussion the sculpture is to stay in its home, just shifting seven meters to allow for new development.

A HUGE congratulations to our Landscape team (namely Jesse and Brendan) who couldn’t wipe the smile off their faces when the eagle landed.
