Hitting the Heights

Have you seen silos wrapped in giant murals near outback roads?

There’s some at Boulia, Charleville and Cunnamulla and now one’s going up at Auguthella.

Excitement is stirring in the tiny community of Augathella as artists from Blender Studios hit the west to transform the iconic Augathella Water Tower into a an epic mural display. The mural, the result of collaboration and consultation with the town, will capture the pioneering spirit of the region in lots of brilliant colour – boasting its stockman, bullock teams, birdlife and of course the Warrego River that the town was built upon.

Proving art is tourism, this mural and more are products of Red Ridge’s ‘Trailblazing the West’ outback art installations.

Red Ridge are proud for this project to be supported by RASN, Arts Queensland, the Queensland Outback Events Program, Murweh Shire Council and the Augathella Progress Association.
