Wupu Manhatinum (Travelling Star) is a mosaic sculpture situated in the CWA Park in Bellbrook. Wupu Manhatinum was a story from the late Aunty Esther Quinlin, a prominent artist and Elder from Bellbrook. The sculpture was dedicated to her in memory.

Artists who worked on the sculpture included Uncle Richard Campbell, Guy Crosley, Elwyn Toby and Malcolm Dickson with language advice from Aunty Caroline Bradshaw. The project also included local primary and high schools, the Bellbrook Progress Association and supported by Kempsey Family Support Services and Create NSW.

The sculpture was created as part of The Dhanggati Wiriiyn Yapang (Dunghutti Story Trail) a project facilitated by Kempsey Council with local artists and community groups to create a series of public art sculptures that share local Dunghutti stories and culture. Art poles have also been installed at Boorongen Djugun College in West Kempsey and the Kempsey District Hospital with more to be installed at South West Rocks, Services Park Playground, Wigay park and Cochrane Street Playground.
