Lockhart Water Tower Mural

Set close to the historic main street, the Lockhart Water Tower Mural, depicting a cascading waterfall surrounded by many of the unique native fauna and flora found in the local landscape, has rapidly become one of the most incredible pieces of public art in the Riverina.

Undertaken by talented Blue Mountain artists, Scott Nagy and Janne Birkner (Krimsone), well knownin the public mural sphere, the artwork reflects the importance of one of the regions most vital assets - water.

Covering a surface of more than 600m2, the art was created freehand using spray cans in natural hues to complement the Lockhart streetscape and to harmonise with the natural environment.

The mural is easily accessible to visitors, and is situated in a pretty park with modern public toilet facilities. A number of interesting shops are situated within close walking distance to the mural and the Lockhart Visitor Information Centre, housed in Greens Gunyah Museum, is open 7 days a week.
