On Sunday we stumbled by chance on a fantastic mural in Murwillumbah. It’s called the “Treasures of the Tweed Mural Project”.
Artist David Adams is coordinating a group of unemployed volunteers to paint images of endangered flora and fauna of the Mount Warning/Wolumbin volcano region on the concrete flood wall along the Tweed River. They started in 2008 and expect to be finished in 2013. The painted section is about 700 metres long, and although I took heaps of photos I can put only a very small selection here. It really is worthwhile having a look if you’re around Mur’bah. [Update: David says (in his comment below) it will be 1400 metres all up, 2.2 metres high.]
