ngarunga nangama : calm water dream by Judy Watson
The site connects with the history of the Tank Stream which runs parallel with George and Pitt Streets. My mother’s family are from the Waanyi Aboriginal language group of North West Queensland, known as ‘running water’ people. I have always been interested in bodies of water and their connection to Country. When I heard about the Sydney tank stream in connection with this site, I was immediately swimming through the space in my imagination. I researched and used the earliest images of this stream and Warrane (Warrang/Sydney Cove/Port Jackson), in the local Aboriginal (Gadigal) language. Some of the early maps of this place have been incised into the sandstone walls, infilled with red ochre and overlaid with imagery of washes, suggesting water.

Dalley Street Panels, Heritage Interpretation
Maps and images of the site’s history are displayed along the Underwood Street laneway of the adjacent 4 Dalley Street building.
These panels document the history of the site in chronological order.
Harbour Foreshore Line, Heritage Interpretation
The site was once on the Sydney harbour foreshore.
As a celebration of this, a bronze strip has been inlayed into the paving of the ground floor lobby and public domain.
The building tenants, visitors and public can track this line as it traverses the site to see where the harbour foreshore line once was.
