Art work on the road.

One of my favourite things on the road and in the little towns out here nowadays, is the many types of art works you see. Sometimes there are a lot of artist types living in a town and sometimes there has been an effort to attract travelers into these little dying towns to spend their money by installing artwork. Sometimes these are in the towns themselves and sometimes on the roads between them. Sometimes these are in the middle of nowhere and really unexpected. Here are some we have seen recently:

The mural above is actually the Coonalpyn public toilet block!

This eagle is done on an old chain link fence on the main road using small pieces of metal bent around the wire. Very effective! Coonalpyn Art trail.
