    Street Art

    July 30, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    We continued driving into Benalla. We did not really like this town as it was quite dirty, even McDonalds needed a good clean.

    The art work in Benalla is more like street art and is painted on the sides of buildings. However, most of the smaller art is not that good, heaps better in and around Newtown but the larger murals are worth looking at. Also, the map with directions of how to locate the art work is difficult to follow in order to locate the paintings.

    What also made this a shame is that a number of the artworks were behind buildings and had huge dump bins in front of them so you could not see the whole artwork, or they were down weird alleys, again this made it difficult to take photo's and to appreciate the artists work. Benalla council advertises the Art Trail as a tourist atttaction but are not doing it justice. There is so much potential, it's a shame they are not taking advantage of what could be as wonderful drawcard to their weird country town.
