Time Out says

This mural, showing scenes of Aboriginal life from the last 40,000 years, has greeted visitors to Redfern as they've arrive at the station since 1983. It was originally painted by a group of artists led by Carol Ruff – including Colin Nugent, Tracey Moffatt, Joe Geia, Avril Quill, Kristina Nehm and Charlie Aarons – and in 2018 was restored to its original glory by the Redfern Station Community Group. The subjects in the mural stretch back to ancient times, up to colonisation and beyond. There are portraits of community members such as Aunty Mona Donnelly, and one panel showing the 1979 Redfern All Blacks rugby league team.
