Benalla Murals


The town of Benalla in Northeast Victoria is renowned for its murals that decorate the walls of some of its buildings.
I went to town with the new fisheye.


I stood at 7 paces (say 21ft) from this mural (above) which is well over 150 feet long.

I have nothing but the utmost admiration for the artist's who designed and executed these works on such a grand scale

Very nice shots Mark. Benalla is also well known in the gliding world:

Re: Benalla Murals

Thanks Paul, I was unaware that Benalla is known for gliding beyond Australia. How is it that you know about it, and are you into gliding yourself?
While in the town yesterday I drove by the Gliding Club but of course it's not the right time of year here for thermals. Come summer, it is my intention to take a glider flight.

Yes Mark, I'm a glider pilot too, so whenever I hear Benalla I immediately think gliding ! I flew once in Oz - but not at Benalla - instead at The Hunter Valley Gliding Club near Newcastle, NSW.
