Tasmania’s Town of Murals, Sheffield

4.9
#2 of 6 in Neighborhoods in Tasmania
The first mural commissioned in 1986, painted by John Lendis, depicts Gustav Weindorfer, a passionate mountaineer, naturalist and conservationist sharing his home with the wild animals. And now, some 30 years later, many more visually appealing, emotional and curious stories embellish the walls of Sheffield 'The Town of Murals'.

Delightful posters of stories long gone, and the existing murals, have been reproduced on a matt finish, heavy duty photographic paper (Poster Plus). The size is A2 (595mm x 420mm)
