A job well done

The Avoca Reservoir, located on the side of the Esk Main Road, received a makeover. Artists Harrison Bowe and James ‘Kreamart’ Cowan were commissioned by TasWater and worked through all possible weather conditions over seven days in June 2023 to deliver two stunning murals on the prominent reservoir.

Harrison has depicted the morning light touching a cathedral of dolomite from Stacks Bluff – at the southern end of Ben Lomond National Park, a local treasure of epic proportions.

Kreamart has depicted the beloved wedge-tail eagle – a local treasure, which was spotted circling the reservoir over the days of painting.

A commitment was made to the Northern Midlands Council and community in 2019 that this reservoir would be included in our asset painting program, Covid delayed delivery – but we think the result was worth the wait.
