The Heritage Circle is the culmination of a five year community project which has created
a striking public artwork in one of Western Australia’s premier regional parks, G.O. Edwards Reserve. Innovative in design and enhancing the natural landscape, the artwork celebrates the Town of Victoria Park’s unique indigenous and colonial history.

Comprised of six precast concrete panels in a circular formation, each panel stands approximately 2.5 metres tall and 3 metres wide, and weighs approximately 5 tonnes. The Heritage Circle was established to celebrate the Town of Victoria Park`s unique Indigenous and Settlement history. The bronze central map entitled `Nyungar Past and Present` identifies Tribal Territories of the Swan and Canning Rivers as Yagan described them to Robert Lyon in 1832. To represent local colonial community life, a collection of images is illustrated on six themed panels capturing moments in time - Flora and Fauna, Sport and Recreation, Momentous Events and Community, Architecture, Transport and Industries.The panels capture moments in time often long forgotten.
