Origin Story

Nothing says Queensland quite like the colour Maroon.

Inspired by our state’s passion for the greatest sporting rivalry of all time, Origin Story brings together artists from across the region to reflect on the cultural contribution of State of Origin to Queensland’s identity. From the tribal costuming of spectatorship to the adulation of our immortal state heroes, Origin Story celebrates the significance of Rugby League within the Fraser Coast community.

Featuring commissioned artworks from Joel Barney, Shane Jacob, Ashley Nixon, Phillip Piperides, Phoebe Paradise, Jack Rodgers, Teho Ropeyarn, Erika Scott and David Spooner.
