Minlacowie Water Tank Mural

Yorke Peninsula

ATDW pixel
Completed in March 2023, standing at 5.8m high and almost 100 metres around, the gigantic Minlacowie Water Tank Mural was created by Mike Makatron, assisted by Conrad Bizjak, Harley Hall, Dylan Butler, Jason Swales and Sabine Meyer. The design was based on widespread consultation with the local community and Narungga Elders.

Showcasing some of the best of what Yorke Peninsula has to offer, the Minlacowie water tank art strongly reflects the region's Narungga culture, rich agricultural landscapes and natural beauty. Incorporating Narungga totem animals the kanagaroo, emu, shark and eagle, linework and symbol for ‘community’, as well as local flora, coastal scenery and much more, the quality and scale of this mural needs to be seen in person.

Make the journey to this art mural on its own or make a day of it and take on the Southern Yorke Peninsula Water Tower Mural Trail, a self-drive loop starting from Minlacowie.

The Yorke Peninsula is the traditional lands of the Narungga (Nharangga) people, who have lived on, and cared for, this country since the beginning of time. We work, live and travel on Nharannga Banggara [Country], and we take time away from those pursuits to acknowledge and pay our deep respects to the Nharangga Elders of the past and present. 

Today, it is essential that we continue to care for and protect our spectacular natural environment. Tread lightly and leave no trace. Learn more about responsible and respectful travel on Yorke Peninsula.
