Star Dreaming showcases indigenous astronomical stories

Star Dreaming celebrates the rich tradition of Indigenous Australians as the earliest astronomers, and this coin design features Beizam the Shark, made up of the seven stars in the big dipper and Ursa Major, as depicted by Torres Strait Dauareb elder, Segar Passi.

As Melanesian sea-faring people, Torres Strait Islanders have a culture that stretches back an estimated 8000 years, when at the end of the last Ice Age sea levels swamped the land bridge connecting Papua New Guinea and Australia. The stars help guide their traditional laws, customs and practices that are handed down through ceremonies, song and dance. The stars also inform islanders when they should go hunting for dugong and turtles and when to plant food crops like bananas. When the shark constellation appears in the north, islanders know it’s shark mating season.
