Gulargambone Street Art
Wander the streets of Gulargambone to see the multitude of eclectic artworks and sculptures around the town, including the water tower, painted by Jenny McCracken.
In 2019 the community came together to revitalise the town by painting five of the main street buildings in bright colours including window installations. As part of this initiative, they also invited 10 renowned artists for an event, now hosted annually called Pave the Way to Gular, to paint murals on the buildings dotted around the town.

Accompanying the totem poles are two information panels that tell The Wailwan Story, provide photos and information on Aboriginal ceremonies as well as photos and information on the Aboriginal Scarred Trees.
