Yorke Peninsula Council, in partnership with Yorke Peninsula Tourism and the Coobowie, Edithburgh, Stansbury and Yorketown Progress Associations, were successful in gaining funding through the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grant. This funding supports the Southern Yorke Peninsula (SYP) Water Tower/Tank Mural Trail project which will see the SA Water owned water towers in Edithburgh, Stansbury and Yorketown and the water tank in Coobowie painted.
Through community consultation commencing in September 2020, the Yorke Peninsula Community have shared their ideas and inspiration towards what they would like to see on each water tower/tank. Artists then had the opportunity to express interest in undertaking the project by pitching their concepts in line with community themes, artists were then shortlisted. Stage three of the community consultation process, where community members voted on their favourite artist concept was then undertaken, this has since closed. The successful artists, their concepts and the commencement dates for each town are listed below.
