About this tram:

This design is a recreation of Lin Onus’ 1991 Art Tram. Originally created by the artist Lin Onus and painted on the tram by Lin, assisted by his son Tiriki not far from the Aboriginal Advancement league. Lin described the design as symbolising the balance of opposites to achieve harmony: circles and diamonds, day and night, black and white cockatoos. The design is inspired by an amalgam of traditional Aboriginal thoughts and beliefs from all over Australia.
