Yorke Peninsula Council is prepping the final touch to its SYP Water Tower/Tank Mural Trail with two new murals – including the biggest in the region’s history.
Minlacowie’s water tank, which can be seen when travelling between Minlaton and Yorketown, measures almost six metres high and more than 100 metres around.
“This opens up an exciting range of possibilities for what can be produced on this tank,” Mayor Darren Braund said.
“We want to hear people’s thoughts so we can ensure the mural becomes yet another stunning attraction for our region.
“Our current murals depict key aspects of the towns where they are located, but the Minlacowie tank being in no specific town means we can potentially create a mural that reflects the wider region.”
Wool Bay’s water tank and associated shed, near the town golf course, are also set to become works of art.
Council is consulting directly with the Wool Bay community, with ideas so far centring on the town’s history and native flora/fauna, and welcomes suggestions from the wider community as well.
Public consultation ends 5pm Friday, 8 July.
Yorke Peninsula Council wants to hear from the public to help with design options for both tanks.
A drop-in session will be held at the Minlaton Town Hall on Monday, June 27, from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
Members of the public will be able to chat with Council representatives about the project and have their say on what they would like to see painted on the tanks.
The drop-in session will be held in conjunction with a series of walking tours of the newly installed pop-up artwork around the Minlaton main street, weather permitting.
“These artworks, along with many others in our district, add so much to the vibrancy of our region and inspire others to create something unique in their own townships,” SYP Community Hub Community Resilience Officer Katie Hughes said.
