NT Airports CEO Ian Kew with artist Malaluba Gumana


Qantas has a very proud partnership with Balarinji and the Indigenous art we feature throughout our fleet. Our Balarinji Indigenous flying art aircraft are a tribute to Aboriginal art and culture and aim to promote our values around cultural diversity and appreciating Australia’s Indigenous heritage.   


Alan Joyce, CEO, Qantas

Both we and our clients are extremely happy with the final logo. Thank you for being so collaborative with us. It really has resulted in the best possible outcome for the brand.

We must express our appreciation for your Group’s attitude towards safety, on-time completion and flexibility in fitting in with our site construction timetable demands. The level of communication and responsiveness from project inception through to completion could not be faulted. Vopak would unreservedly recommend your Group to any company or organisation contemplating a similar project. 


Len Daly, Managing Director, Vopak Terminals Australia

The Balarinji team has done a fantastic job in pulling this together. We are getting fabulous feedback. The animations are fantastic. Congratulations.

Balarinji listens in a way that everyone is heard, within a truly client-responsive process. Balarinji brought great ideas and a special energy to our project. Nothing prior measured up to the process Balarinji provided. 


Cathryn Byrne, Board Member and Military Advisory Committee Member, Jezzine Barracks Community Trust

Balarinji has been an integral part of the Central City Metro (CCM) design joint venture delivering the Sydney Metro West Technical Advisory services to TfNSW.


They have led the Aboriginal research and engagement elements of our project with a huge level of professionalism. The input and approach they have provided is making a fundamental difference to the way we engage on design major infrastructure projects.


Ros, John and their team have been a pleasure to work with and I would have no hesitation in recommending Balarinji.


Sam McWilliam, Major Projects Executive, WSP Australia Pty Limited, 2018

Recently I had the privilege of partaking in a consultative process with the incredible team at Balarinji.  Professional, cultural safe and friendly, as was the environment they provided to participants.


The team knew their subject matter and were extremely well versed and aware of the project and issues along with recognizing and understanding the importance of walking in two worlds whilst holding Traditional customs and beliefs at the core of all discussion.


It was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend Balarinji for any further projects undertaken.


Julie Bukari Webb (Jones), Traditional Custodian Western Sydney, 2018

TfNSW engaged Balarinji to lead the design of the Brunt Bridge Creek Deviation noise wall mural. The original intent was to not only deter vandalism but celebrate the Aboriginal stories and culture of the area. Balarinji's community-led process was detailed and provided a beautiful engaging design outcome which connects to both the landscape and Aboriginal heritage of the area. We have received positive feedback from the local community and hope it will continue to discourage vandalism.
