Rail trail art nearing completion

The Great Victorian Rail Trail (GVRT) Art Installation Project is on track to be completed by the end of April as planned.

Murrindindi, Mitchell and Mansfield Shire Councils are working together on this exciting project, which will see 7 major art installations placed along the length of the Rail Trail.

The three councils will be partnering with Tourism North-East to promote this iconic tourist attraction to attract more visitors to the Rail Trail and surrounding areas. Once launched, it will be known as ‘Art on the Great Victorian Rail Trail’.

Initial onsite works are underway on the 7 installations and will continue over the next few months. The two sculpture sites in Mitchell are now installed.

A series of smaller works by Taungurung artist and Elder, Uncle Mick Harding are already in place along the Trail.

As part of the project, visitors to the rail trail will also benefit from a series of new wayfinding and interpretive signs installed along the Trail. These signs will improve the visitor experience, sharing First Peoples stories and information and connecting people with sites along the Trail.

The project is made possible with funding of $1.2 million from the Victorian Government’s Regional Tourism Investment Fund.
