On the outskirts of town, we explore the unique and eclectic collection from local artists, Angus & Sandie Wilson with private access only. Discover the inspiration behind some of the town's most loved pieces made from scrap metal and old farmyard favourites.
The Boat Ramp
With unrivalled views of the MacIntyre River, this picture perfect precinct is quickly evolving with locals fishing and creative flair. Not to mention a new pontoon and abundance of wildlife in the warmer months.
Who needs Melbourne when you have 'Bowen Lane' and local arts committee, Lanescape. Featuring major works by renowned artist, Ian Tremewen and our very own local High School, keep an eye out for unexpected gems.
Border Heritage Precinct
Set against The Old Bridge, Gunsynd Memorial and our heritage listed Customs House Museum, this peaceful precinct forms part of the Australian Silo Art Trail. It's also the home of this old Carbeen Tree, better known to locals as the 'Tree of Knowledge'.
The Art & Sculpture trail departs from Goondiwindi Cotton (27 Herbert St) on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 2pm. The tour takes approx. 2.5hrs. With friendly locals leading the way and the comfort of our air conditioned bus, this is a great way to see the town and enjoy 'Regional Australia at it's Best'.
