This new book titled women of brisbane judy watson details research collected by a team of collaborators and community about women who have contributed to Brisbane’s history. It also details the historical narratives which inform the new public art trail by Judy Watson between Maiwar (the Brisbane River) and Kingsford Smith Drive (in Brisbane’s Hamilton).

More than 180 women are included in this beautifully designed artist’s book and they include names you may know, like Oodgeroo Noonuccal (1920-1993), and many others that you may not know. These women’s names are part of one of Brisbane’s newest public artworks along the Lores Bonney Riverwalk in Brisbane’s Hamilton, with Judy Watson’s suite of images sand-blasted and imprinted on signage into the walkway. Watson’s artwork is titled bandarra-gan chidna: strong woman track / track of strong women and was completed late in 2019. This new book arose out of the significant research undertaken by many people to create the work, along with community consultation.
