Public art trail planned for Nambucca River Foreshore

Nick Warfield has been contracted by Nambucca Valley Council as a creative consultant for the new public art trail.

A VISION to enrich the experience of, and connection to, the Nambucca River (Nyambaga Bindarray) for the community and visitors sees a new art project being planned for the river foreshore.

Nambucca Valley Council plans to install a new public art trail along the foreshore walk between the Visitor Information Centre at the corner of Giinagay Way and Riverside Drive and the eastern end of the V-Wall at Wellington Drive, Nambucca Heads.

Through a series of sculptural elements that reflect and celebrate the cultural, historical and natural heritage of the river the art trail will serve to tell a story and name a connection to, and with, the river.

Council is now inviting the Nambucca Valley community to contribute their personal stories of the Nambucca River.
These stories will help inspire artists to develop the sculptural and artistic elements of the art trail.

Nick Warfield has been contracted by Council as a creative consultant to facilitate the design, fabrication and installation of five small to medium scale sculptural elements and a mural to be included as part of the Nambucca River Foreshore project.

Nick is working closely with Anna Fisher from Fisher Design & Architecture to realise this part of the project.

“My background is as a visual artist/sculptor having been a full time practising artist for the last twelve years,” Nick told News Of The Area.

“The last few years, having been commissioned to do various public art sculptures, I have moved into creative consultancy with local councils having worked with Kempsey Shire Council and now Nambucca Shire Council.”

Everyone is welcome to share thoughts, written words, memories, or personal connection stories to the river.

Please email your stories to

For more information or to speak to the team in person, please contact Nick Warfield on 0409 472 623 or Anna Fisher on 0407 064 736.

Closing date for story submissions is Tuesday 14 March 2023.
