The Quinninup Eagle
The eagle was made by a local artist craftsman, John Goodlad in 1983 to advertise the location of Quinninup where he had his studio. It was initially positioned at the intersection of Wheatley Coast Road and the SouthWest Highway.
In 1985 after an article appeared in the Warren Blackwood Times about the removal of the Eagle from its location on the highway. It was relocated by local residents to its present position at the southern entrance to Quinninup, where it has remained to the present day. The Eagle has been well looked after over the years, receiving a new coat of paint on a regular basis and featuring prominently in many of the school children’s art projects.
