Survey to rate town murals

AS public murals start to pop up all over the Mareeba Shire, locals are now being asked for their views on the artwork.

Eight artworks have been created over the past year, with colourful murals now decorating the Mount Molloy Memorial Hall, Chillagoe Town Hall, Biboohra Water Tanks, Kuranda Visitor Information Centre, Mutchilba Community Hall and Mareeba Skate Park. 

In addition, a colourful mosaic has been created at Mareeba Centenary Park.

To guide the council in what the next four murals should look like, a community survey has been launched to get feedback on the current ones. 

The results will also support council’s application for further grant funding from the Regional Arts Development Fund which awarded the shire grants for the existing new murals.

The survey asks respondents to rate the overall quality of the artwork, whether it is “impressive and pleasing to the eye”, whether it enhances the attractiveness of the location, whether it reflects the community's unique local character, culture, heritage or natural environment, and whether it encourages a sense of shared identity amongst community members.
