Spirit of the Land Mural

Biloela, Banana Area

The Spirit of the Land Mural is an extraordinary dedication to the history of the land.

Coating the cylindrical exterior of one of the town’s water reservoirs, the large scale artwork seamlessly pieces together the stories of the surrounding country, from its pre-historic beginnings to early 20th Century times.

Told through the eyes of two women from vastly different cultural perspectives, the mural marks the deep connection we each share with land and how it shapes our cultures and customs and brings meaning to our lives.

The mural is 100 metres round and the stories unfold through a series of plaques that line the path.
