The arts

Are you into music, writing, photography, crafts, history or beautiful gardens? There's something in Goomalling for you.

Public art

Dotted around Goomalling are mosaics, sculptures, murals, ceramics and other art works.  Some were made as community projects and some were generously provided by individuals.

Art - Roo Art - Campfire Sculpture in Progress

The kangaroo sculpture at the Goomalling Caravan Park and the campfire scene on Railway Tce were made by local farmers.

Wheatbelt Wander Wall

In 2004 Goomalling born artist Fleur Schell engaged the Goomalling schools and broader community to create the Wheatbelt Wander Wall (below) located on Railway Terrace opposite the Tavern. It comprises machinery parts, mosaics, a pipeline and ceramic tiles depicting local history.

Crystal Serpent

As part of the Salt of the Earth community art project, the Goomalling schools and interested residents joined together to create a "crystal serpent" at Oak Park. As you can see below, the finished sculpture looked particularly striking when flooded.
