Cabarita Beach Dunecare’s storage container on Goanna Track has gone from being an eyesore to a thing of beauty. Painting of the second side of the container (pictured) was completed on Tuesday 14 August.

Local artist Mindy Clarke teamed up with professional muralists Laing Rahner and Jamie Brown to create the stunning landscape that depicts the iconic view north from Maggies Beach to Norries Headland.

The mural includes images of some common native animals, including a swamp wallaby and goanna, along with some threatened species found on the site, such as the Little Bentwing Bat and Glossy Black Cockatoo.

The artists said, ‘The concept behind the staging of the design highlights the simple message that if we look after the bush here then the animals will also flourish’.

Materials and funding were provided by Tweed Shire Council and Cabarita Beach Bowls and Sports Club.
