Merbein Community Art Trail
LMW has partnered with the Merbein District Historical Society to develop the Merbein Community Art Trail
The Community Art Trail gives everyone the opportunity to share their story, culture and heritage through art, with a primary focus on bringing everyone together to learn new skills, share ideas and put Merbein on the map as part of the art trail community.
The walking trail will follow the decommissioned irrigation channel route along Channel Road in Merbein. As part of the Sunraysia Modernisation project, 7kms of the channel were replaced with pipeline which was completed in 2016.
The trail will provide a safe and interesting community walking trail linking areas within Merbein, for school students, tourists and the community to view large outdoor artworks inspired and created by the community. Interactive signage linking the artworks and telling the story behind each one will also be installed along with solar lighting. Local Merbein P-10 College students will also get involved with the development of a video to be shared online and generate national interest for tourists and visitors.
