Yorke Peninsula’s water tanks are undergoing artistic creations with a series of murals recently finished and in progress.

Thanks to the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grant four water tanks in the Yorke Peninsula are getting makeovers––and three of them have been finished in time for Easter.

They are Coobowie, YorkeTown and Edithbrug.

Coobowie was completed by artists Creature Creature and Jason Parker, Yorketown by Jasmine Crisp and Edithburg by Mike Makatron.

With the completion of these three water tanks there is just one more to go in Stansbury with that set to start in May.

There is one more water tank getting a makeover in Port Vincent but that is being funded by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) and SA Water.

The Port Vincent tower is set to begin work sometime in April and will be produced by artists Joel Van Moore and Elizabeth Close.

Yorketown

The Yorketown watertank mural features stunning representation of the landscape around it whilst also featuring a Royal Flying Doctors plane which is so important to the area.

Coobowie

The smallest of the three but no less impressive, this mural depicts native fruits and plants and a striking Black Swan.

Edithburg

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

Stay tuned for mural number four!
