The Art Trail of the Outback
DISCOVER CENTRAL WESTERN QUEENSLAND
Australia, grab your maps—the West is about to uncover one of the most spectacular trails yet...!
Have you heard about Red Ridge Interior Queensland’s newest project, Trailblazing the West? Trailblazing the West is a Red Ridge hosted art trail that will deliver numerous Water Tower and Tank mural artworks in different towns throughout our stunning Outback, including: Mt Isa, Dajarra, Richmond, Windorah, Jundah, Stonehenge, and Augathella – linking in with Charleville and Cunnamulla, thanks to Year of the Outback – Premier Outback Events funding.
Follow The Trail
Exciting launch of this regional project is set to kick off in September with first stop Mt Isa, rolling through our towns to wrap-up in 2020 and spanning a distance of over 1800 kilometres.
By engaging professional large-scale street artists to complete the art trail that’ll lead through the heart of western Queensland, we hope to celebrate our Outback and landscape in a way that incorporates each town’s individual culture.
Although we all belong to one region, the vastness of our space has meant that all are stories are so unique—so what better way to celebrate what makes our towns stand out than to showcase our heritage through Art?
By supplying and creating unique and high-quality large-scale artwork within regional Queensland, we also aim to bolster tourism activity and engagement with our rural towns. Through this project, we strive to provide a long-lasting public exhibition that showcases what makes our towns brilliant places to not only visit, but to connect with on deeper cultural levels.
With 9 towns involved thanks to Year of the Outback and Premier Outback Events Funding, we at Red Ridge are able to take one step further in empowering communities to not only celebrate their culture, heritage, and history, but to actively engage with an arts platform that allows such rich expression through one gathered voice. United in art, we can't wait to see the project unfold!
