Created by Western Australian artist Jon Tarry, 'Waterline' is a series of water experiences sculpted in Western Australian granite running through Yagan Square.

The feature is made up of a sequence of connected elements – from a water ‘source’ at the Playscape where water appears, bubbling up around a sculpted egg-like rock – and then cascades past the Amphitheatre, garden and grassed terraces.

Sculptures, sound and motion invite stories of life and local animals once found in this area including black swans, swamphens and gilgies.

You can also find 11 plaques along the Waterline that make up the Discovery Trail, highlighting the connections between animals, the water and Whadjuk stories.
