A Mosaic Story

Queensland Road Trip, May 2022

Let’s go on a road trip! Come with us to Townsville and west on the Savannah Way to Karumba on an adventure in far north Queensland.

In the park across the road from the Railway Hotel in Ravenswood there’s a remarkable piece of public art; a wonderful mosaic chair created for the 150th anniversary of gold mining in the town. Each detailed panel tells a story about gold mining in the area, with scenes depicting people and activities from the past and the present.

Historic mining locations are listed on brass plaques, while images of old methods of finding gold contrast with modern technologies.

Even the local birds are included in this amazing work of art.

  1. These are fabulous, Carol. The work is so intricate. It sounds like you might get Hey Jude to start up another challenge. I didn’t know Becky was going to start squares back again. That’s wonderful. BTW, I didn’t find a link from this post to my PPAC Photographing Pubic Art Challenge. So that’s probably why I didn’t see it. I will link it to this week’s challenge, though. It is an amazing piece of art.
