Lake Cargelligo Water Tower Mural

No visit to Lake Cargelligo is complete without viewing the amazing water tower mural painted in March 2022 by well- known artist Heesco Khosnaran with assistance of Erin Haywood and Damien Mitchell.

The decommissioned water tower has come to life and attracts visitors from around the globe.
