Joongarrabah - The Place of the Pelican
Introducing our newest recycled plastic mat by our beloved local artist, Christine Slabb of Bundjalung.
Joongarrabah is a peak that overlooks the Tweed and Gold Coast Region. This iconic landmark is a vital part of the local cultural landscape.
For many generations, this special place has been significant in the teaching of “Garrima” respect.
In collaboration with Recycled Mats, this mat is one of a specially commissioned series that celebrates the coming together of nations from across the globe to partake in sport, culture, art and entertainment.
We adore this newest addition to the Recycled Plastic Mats range and its modern take on ancient wisdom....and we think you will too.

My favourit design to dateBy: Vicci Oliver on 26 February 2018I absolutely adore this design! These mats are just so easy to use. We use this particular mat for our nomadic playgroup and it really sets the tone when the families arrive for a day of play and exploration. It is the perfect base for us to invite our Wildlings to gather for songs and stories. It makes a beautiful backdrop for our photos as well. We love it!
GARRIMA matBy: Suzanne Dee on 14 February 2018I bought this for Science discussions at school. The students love this and the size is perfect. They enjoy sitting in the circle on the seated figure symbols. We have a high Aboriginal dynamic and suits our school.
