The much loved Willoughby Bicentennial Banners have been restored and returned to the community. They are now hanging in the new Civic Pavilion on The Concourse at Chatswood.
The 14 appliqued and quilted banners were originally created to celebrate the Australian bicentenary in 1988. They depict the social history of the Willoughby area up to that time.
They portray scenes from 30,000 years ago of the land’s original inhabitants, the Guringai nation, through to the modern and diverse business centre of Chatswood.
They were designed by Malcolm King and sewn by community volunteers led by textile artist, Yvonne Line.
