Yorke Peninsula Water Tower Mural Trail now more accessible

Melissa Smith

New paths allow visitors full scale views of award-winning artworks

Visitors and locals can now enjoy 360-degree views of some of Yorke Peninsula’s exquisite water tower murals, thanks to newly fenced walking paths.
The Southern Yorke Peninsula Water Tower Mural Trail is part of the larger YP Art Trail, with eight colourful pieces of art adorning water towers and tanks from Port Vincent to Port Moorowie.

Yorke Peninsula Council’s Mayor, Darren Braund, said the new paths not only improve the overall visitor experience by providing unobstructed views of the murals but also serve the landowners by preventing trespassing on their property and protecting their crops. He expressed gratitude to the landowners who permitted the installation of these paths.
The most recent additions to the mural trail are Minlacowie’s colourful SA Water tank, spray and hand-painted with local animals including a kangaroo, emu, shark and eagle, as well as the old Minlacowie homestead and pink salt lakes, as well as recognition of  the Narungga culture and the region’s rich agriculture and natural beauty.
Wool Bay’s iconic water tank also celebrates the local scenery with colour, a nod to the First Nations history, the beautiful Wool Bay flora and fauna and a special “Women in the clouds” feature.
With summer holidays at our doorstep, it’s the perfect time to take a trip to the Southern Yorke Peninsula and hit the trail on a self-drive loop.
