The Murrumburrah Flour Mills are going to be painted, the Harden Regional Development Corporation (HRDC) announced last week.
HRDC Chair Richard Fleming says the painting of the Mills is a great project for the towns and something that has been the focus of the HRDC Committee for some time. “The painting of the Murrumburrah Mills will add another exciting drawcard to the town. The mural will connect Harden Murrumburrah to the NSW Mill Painting trail, attract the tourism drive markets and create a destination stop of road trippers,” said Mr Fleming.
“The timing couldn’t be better to begin the project in the wake of the Murrumboola Creek redevelopment announcement, as the mural will add to the beautification of the area, giving people a real insight to the history of the Mills and be a connection point between the new development and the business district of Murrumburrah.”
Artist Heesco has been engaged to complete the work. Heesco specializes in silo painting and has completed works in Grenfell and Weethalle.
“Now we need your help to decide, in conjunction with the Harden Murrumburrah Historical Society and Mill owners Greg and Robyn Medway, we gave the artist a full history of the mills and a lot of historical photographs. Heesco has given us two options and we are putting it out there for the community to decide,” HRDC CEO Chris Ireland said.
Voting opened on the 26th of August and will remain open until next Tuesday, with the winning design announced on Wednesday.
