Main Street Murals
The main street murals were official opened on 13th December 2002. The project involved local artists, community members, local organisations and school children.
The theme of the main street murals is a day in Gulargambone. Starting in the twilight, through the dawn, morning, and the heat of the day, moving on to evening, nightfall, and a new dawn. The Castlereagh River runs through the entire mural, in drought and in flood.
