Art Trail

Public Art at The Rail

Mount Gambier Railway Lands

The City of Mount Gambier, funded by SA Government’s Department of Planning Transport and Infrastructure, has developed Public Art at The Rail, a public art park located at Mount Gambier’s Railway lands. The project is well poised to position Mount Gambier as a major cultural focal point, and represents one of the more interesting developments in Australian public art. And indeed, Art at The Rail has been in the making for the past ten years, since Council took formal ownership of the land in 2005. The master plan, a four hectare site stretching between Wehl Street Sth to Bay Rd, created predominantly internally by the City of Mount Gambier, was in the making for the past 7 years, basing itself on open green space and parkland theme.

This catalogue, printed in 2016, outlines the installations and artists involved in the establishment of the Railway Lands Art Trail.

We acknowledge the Boandik Peoples as the traditional custodians of the land we meet on today. We respect their spiritual relationship with the land and recognise the deep feelings of attachment our First Nations Peoples have with the land.
