The WALLABIES INDIGENOUS JERSEY has been designed by a young kamilaroi/gamilaraay man from Redfern in Sydney. The artwork shows the wallabies and indigenous and non-indigenous communities coming together as one. the name wallaby, also known as ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“walabiÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ or ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“wulabaÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢, comes from the aboriginal language of the gadigal people of eora country (Sydney).
Through the centre of the artwork, the wallaby is shown as a symbol for moving forward; it travels through many lands and communities whilst facing obstacles along the way. As the wallaby can only move forward and not backward, it reflects rugby Australia's goals to celebrate sport, culture and community by always showing strength, respect and courage.
The layers of circular symbols and patterns depict the many camps, communities and people who all meet around the wallaby to work, share and connect with one another. in honour of the 14 indigenous players who have donned the wallabies jersey, there are 14 symbols surrounding the wallaby which celebrate the communities and contributions of Australia's 14 indigenous wallabies.
