Popular Stories

An art installation project along the Great Victorian Rail Trail, GVRT, is set to be completed by the end of April, with initial onsite works underway on the seven installations.

Murrindindi, Mitchell and Mansfield Shire Councils are partnering to deliver seven major art installations placed along the length of the rail trail, including a series of smaller works by Taungurung artist and Elder Uncle Mick Harding.

The project was made possible through the State Government’s Regional Tourism Investment Fund.

The three councils are partnering with Tourism North-East to boost the tourist attraction, which will soon officially be known as ‘Art on the Great Victorian Rail Trail.’

A series of new interpretive signs will also be installed along the trail, sharing First People’s stories and information.

The trail will remain open for most of the installation period, however there will be small sections where riders will need to dismount.

In early April, two of the installations will require a one-day closure on a section of the trail near Homewood and another section near Maindample.

The community will be advised of the dates the website theloop.murrindindi.vic.gov.au/GVRT-art-project and on social media.

Community members can find more information about the project, artists and their art installations, including individual artist videos and a map of artwork locations, by visiting The Loop website.
