Don't be alarmed if you see something a little different in Crown Street Mall from Thursday.
A new temporary art display is hanging in upper part of the mall as part of Easter school holiday activities.
Artist Elyssa Sykes-Smith has built a Bilby Burrow using recycled timber that is suspended high under the bridge and everyone is welcome to get involved.
The Bilby Burrow aims to encourage the audience to explore the site, to stop, look upwards.
Wollongong City Lord Mayor Councillor Gordon Bradbery AM said it's wonderful to see a specific installation artwork being created in the City Centre.
"It will be an exciting and vibrant time in the City Centre, especially as the artwork will be created not just by the artist but also by children who can paint pieces for the Bilby burrow. These individual pieces will be suspended onto the artwork in the Mall on Wednesday 17 April.
"This will add another dimension to our Mall. It will allow children to participate in creating a large artwork and will spark conversation and kids' imagination.
"In addition, at a time when everyone's minds are on rabbits, I hope, the artwork will also raise awareness of one of Australia's threatened species like the Bilby and how important they are to the desert habitat where they live."
The art will be on display until April 28. The "burrow" is a symbol of shelter and of care. Bilby Burrow calls for people to consider how they can help and care for the bilbies in their own communities.
Free workshops will be held from Sunday to Tuesday at 1pm each day. Children can paint pieces of timbre that will be included in the artwork.
On April 17, the pieces that are made at the workshops will be included in the artwork as part of the Easter Bilby Live Burrow Build performance from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
The fun doesn't stop there. Families are invited to the aster Bilby Treasure Hunt on April 18 and April 20 from 9am to 4pm.
Participants pick up a treasure map from Wollongong Central Customer Service Desk and search the shopfront windows of the Crown Street Mall to find the six bilby names. Once found, they will be rewarded with a Bilby chocolate.
Ms Sykes-Smith is an artist working within the fields of site-specific sculpture, installation, performance and public art.
She has previously exhibited in the Sculpture by the Sea, at the Mind Walk in Western Australia and in Barangaroo Reserve, Sydney.
"The sculpture not only responds to a site but also brings it to life, creating a dynamic relationship between the audience, artwork and surrounding environment," Ms Sykes-Smith said.
