Colourful revamp

New mural for Dwellingup.

The Dwellingup General Store has been revamped by new owners and includes an incredible mural by internationally-renowned Perth artist, Kyle Hughes-Odgers.

The bold artwork is a narrative-based work inspired by the natural environment in Dwellingup – the Munda Biddi Trail, flora, fauna and human interaction.

The refurbishment was supported by the Shire of Murray’s Facade Refurbishment Program, designed to help revitalise Pinjarra and Dwellingup Town Centres.

Murray Shire President David Bolt said the program was an initiative that supports the Council’s ‘Place’ aspiration in their Council Plan to ensure the rural charm is preserved while they grow by embracing innovative urban design ideas.

“The program aims to support and assist landowners and local business owners with revitalisation and activation of the of Pinjarra and Dwellingup town centres to create active, vibrant, attractive and safe places for our community and visitors to enjoy,” Shire President Bolt said.

As an incentive to encourage landowners and local business owners to upgrade their building facades, the program will offer successful applicants the opportunity to receive a matched 50 per cent financial contribution of eligible works to a maximum value of $20,000 to put towards works that will improve the visual appearance and assist with activation of the two town centres.
