Murals


Many a country town paints their walls with murals in an attempt to make their drab surroundings tourist worthy, so I treated the idea of the murals a Bowen with scepticism.  However when I saw them I was very pleasantly surprised.  There were lots of them and all lovely.

  1. I especially like the one with the ladies in their 1920s outfits.

    1. However been that dressed up in the field seems a little odd to me.

  2. That's certainly an interesting take on the mural. Bowen seems to have a few tourist attractions these days.

    2. No way! Haven't been to Mt Isa, Winton, Birdsville, Airlie Beach or the Great Barrier reef in a glass bottom boat.

    3. Well we get a few of those into this trip and just might do the rest next year because we loved our Qld tour so much this year.

    1. It was an interesting trip .... can't wait for next year when we will venture to a warm place again, perhaps more of inland Queensland.

  6. I've seen many a dodgy mural in country towns.
    (I'm sure there could be material for a blog there!).
    Reminds me of the poor Spanish woman who "restored" the painting of Jesus.
    Have you seen it?
