We’re giving the Stratford community a sneak-peek of the mural which will be painted on the side of the new Avon River bridge.
Acclaimed Gippsland artist Ray Thomas will soon begin work on a 25-metre long, two-metre high mural facing Apex Park, which will feature the Avon River as its theme, as chosen by Stratford locals earlier this year.
The mural will honour the Brayakaulung clan and their connection to the Avon River and features Gunaikurnai ancestral totems and cultural practices including scarred canoe trees, stone grinding grooves and bush foods.
The Stratford community has also recently provided feedback on the concept design for the improvements to Apex Park. We will present the final design to the community in the coming months.
The project’s improvements to Apex Park, including a new nature-based playground and BMX/pump track, are targeted for completion in early 2021.
