Your drive through the South Australian countryside has gotten a lot more beautiful lately. Sights that would usually feature drab and bleak water towers and silos have now been transformed into spectacular pieces of art.

There has been a real push from rural communities and councils to make these structures beautiful, and the latest water tank to finish its makeover is in the picturesque seaside town of Edithburg on the Yorke Peninsula.

This tank and four others are getting painted as part of the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grant.

The grant seeks to boost tourism in regional communities that were effected by the 2019 bushfires. The areas included in the “mural trail” are Yorketown, Edithburgh, Coobowie, Stansbury, and Port Vincent.

Artists Mike Makatron, Conrad Bizjak, and Dylan Butler are the artists who brought the stunning Edithburgh mural to life.

The design pay’s homage to the abundance of sea life around the area and includes dolphins, garfish and cuttlefish.

Next time you’re in Edithburgh be sure to check out the art just outside of town.
