Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority (SHFA) had a number of Arqua Stations installed at Darling Quarter in Darling Harbour, as part of a strategy to implement a bottle-free environment. As well as protecting the marine eco-system by reducing the amount of waste, SHFA aims to better accommodate the tourist industry by providing fresh drinking water. A number of Monsoon Bins were also purchased for the Darling Quarter redevelopment.

Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority (SHFA) has placed a number of SFA’s stylish and iconic Arqua Stations along the foreshore of Circular Quay East. The Arqua Station is a complete system that provides fresh tap or filtered water to public spaces. First launched in 2008, the public drinking fountain and water-refill pole was the result of a collaboration with environmental group Do Something!, in order to reduce the impact of disposable plastic bottles on overall landfill. The innovative fountain is designed without a basin, so that litter is not collected (causing blockage) and residual water trickles easily down a sculptural blade.

Leichhardt City Council developed plans for the improvement of Annandale village shops, located on Johnston and Booth Streets. As part of funding allocated to original street art, then Mayor Jamie Parker proposed a water fountain artwork. Artist Sarah Muggeridge was awarded the $15,000 commission to create a mosaic art piece from the Street Furniture Australia Arqua Station. The result is a colourful, intricate design that brightens the streetscape and reflects the spirit of the local community.
