A BRIGHT new mural has been painted on the Mutchilba Community Hall, showcasing the rich agriculture industry in the township.

Depicting cattle, grapes, lychees, mangos and citrus, as well as the Mareeba Dimbulah irrigation scheme, the mural was designed by professional artist Lavinia Letheby and members of the community. 

Lavinia held a very successful community “paint by numbers workshop”, which was attended by more than 40 local residents who helped lay down base colours for the artwork.

“Lavinia is an accomplished mural painter and has delivered many vibrant and unique artworks across Far North Queensland, including the Chillagoe Town Hall mural in November 2023,” Mareeba Mayor Angela Toppin said.

“The mural injects lots of colour into the space and will be enjoyed by locals and visitors for many years to come.”

“I would like to encourage residents and visitors to contact the committee to enquire about hiring the hall.”
