Face of the Community[edit]

There are two images (as seen below), representing the faces of the community. This is a literal merge of many of The City of Cockburn's faces and visually depicts the average female and male; a white middle aged woman and young boy respectively. Clearly representing the demographic of its constituents and prominently displayed on the top of the station. They are clearly visible from the Kwinana Freeway. In June 2015, these were replaced with the original works donated to charities.[21]
