Fighting Brumbies paint a picture of Maryborough history

THE Fraser Coast community has given thumbs up and heart emojis in an overwhelming response to the painting of Maryborough's latest mural.

"The Maryborough Mural Project is thrilled with the community's response to its 21st mural," project co-founder Elizabeth Lowrie said.

"We have had an overwhelming 'We love it!' response from the public for our Fighting Brumbies mural painted last month.

"500 Facebook likes and over 12,000 page views.

"The horse-loving people of the Fraser Coast have given us their big tick of approval, circulating it widely in the community.

"This mural is action packed and fittingly represents the complex natural history of our region."

Brumbies have been sighted in the region and on Fraser Island for years and they can still be seen running wild in the Tuan Forest.

This mural can be seen at 182 Bazaar St, side wall facing carpark of Tom's Hair Creations.

It was painted by David Houghton, a member of the Rythmicolour Collective.

Co-founder Deb Hannam said it was commissioned through Cr Denis Chapman's discretionary funds. "We are exceedingly grateful for Denis' support.

"This mural could not have been completed if it was not for the ongoing support of Maryborough businesses and its volunteer community."
