The River Country Art Trail project is at an exciting stage as we look to review the concept designs for the trail’s water towers, and the public are invited to have their say!

The River Country Art Trail will feature stunning large-scale murals on water towers in Barham, Mathoura, Moulamein, and Moama, along with an impressive large-scale sculpture in Tooleybuc. Together, these artworks will form an exciting outdoor gallery across the Murray River Council area.

Three artists for each site have now been shortlisted, each presenting bespoke concept designs inspired by community feedback and local themes.

Specialist consultants FORM, in collaboration with Murray River Council, are bringing the project to life and are asking for community feedback to help shape these artistic landmarks.

Murray River Council mayor, Frank Crawley is encouraging residents to take an interest and get involved.

“In recent years Silo Art has captured the imagination of travellers nationwide, and we're thrilled to bring our unique twist to this type of tourist attraction, highlighting our region’s identity. The concepts from our shortlisted artists are incredible, and we’re eager to hear which designs resonate most within our communities.”

From Tuesday July 2 to Friday July 12 visit the Council’s Your Say website to view and provide feedback on the designs for the water towers in Barham, Moulamein, Mathoura, and Moama.

Each town has three concepts to review, and your input is crucial in selecting the final designs that best represent each area.

“The community’s feedback and recommendations are essential to ensure each water tower installation captures the unique identity of our townships and region.” Cr Crawley said.

To view the concepts, visit council’s River Country Art Trail project page and select the local town you wish to view.


Concepts for the Tooleybuc sculpture will be released at a later date.

“This is such an exciting project, not just for the local towns but for the whole region as we’ll soon have another attraction that will encourage visitors to stop, explore, and appreciate these townships and the surrounding areas,” added Cr Crawley.

The project is externally funded via Round 2 of the Regional Tourism Activation Fund.
