• Birds Eye View Murals Wedderburn

The Birds Eye View murals are a new and exciting addition to the Wedderburn streetscape. There are five large walls painted throughout the town featuring various different bird species all local to the area. Why birds? Well, Wedderburn has been identified as a mecca for birdlife due to its unique ecosystems where four different intact bio-regions meet and intersect, creating a diverse habitat for birds including the iconic Mallee Fowl, Swift Parrot and Bush-Stone Curfew. The native bushland of Wedderburn supports 180 bird species, 20 of which are listed as endangered by Bush Hertiage Australia. The birds represent the community's quest for sustainability, vitality, strength and resilience.
