Mosaic floor in Centenary Pavilion

Down near the jetty in Derby there is a centenary pavilion which was
installed in 2001. From the outside it looks pretty ordinary and not worth
taking a photo of yet the floor inside the pavilion is an amazing mosaic.
The mosaic was a community effort involving 370 children and adults who
spent 700 hours laying the 30,000 tiles.

The floor is in the colours of the Aboriginal flag - I didn't take a lot of
photos but from these two you will be able to pick out the station worker,
the snake, fish, mud crab, turtle and other things.
