“As a young girl I used to spend most weekends at Taroona Beach with my family walking along the foreshore, exploring, climbing rocks, running amuck, adventuring and playing in the surrounding bush land.

Fast track 15 years or so and frequent trips overseas and a long stint on the mainland of Australia, I found myself back in this little oasis with my own toddlers in hand, who now enjoy exploring the Taroona foreshore, climbing rocks, adventuring and playing.

Sea Dragon Guardian Creating the new mythology An Intergenerational project with Mary’s Grange, Men’s Shed Kingston and community members, facilitated and dreaming by Helen Quilty, renowned local artist and resident. “Let us weave our creative magic to build a new dragon for Taroona, Paint his body, use rings and strings and other things.
He will wear a garland of seaweed and seashore bounty to be his mane. Jewell colours of glistening scales that sparkle in the rain. Our magic we will give him, a fearless roar and eyes that blaze like coals in the fire of his breath.” Helen Quilty FIRE CEREMONY BY THE TAROONA SCOUTS AND STORIES AROUND THE CAMP FIRE.
Interest has been sparked to create a permanent labyrinth on the Taroona Foreshore. To initiate this project Mark Healy, Magic Pathman and Judy Keen, local labyrinth specialist will be creating an ephemeral labyrinth. Everyone is encouraged to bring flowers to decorate the path while mosaic tiles will adorn the centre.

Recently on one of these walks I mused there was something amiss. I thought about how wonderful it would be to have a community event celebrating this wonderful space and showcasing our unique environment to the greater community, like an 'open day' of the Taroona Foreshore. Once I got home, out came the butcher paper and scrambling together of pen to paper. Numerous word documents followed and after many conversations, discussions and ramblings, the Taroona Art Trail seed was planted……” Ruth!Butler!

Labyrinths are found to date back 2000years. Some scientific research has credited walking labyrinths with physical and mental healing and general wellbeing. In the future we hope to all be involved in creating a permanent site for relaxation, contemplation and meditation.
