Public Art in Queanbeyan

Morty the snail

Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council has adopted a public art policy for the City and has established a Public Art Advisory Panel to consider and advise on public art projects and proposals. The Public Art Policy can be downloaded here.

A walking tour has been developed to take in all the wonderful Public Art that is in and around the Queanbeyan CBD. Below is a map which will guide your around the Public Art Walk. The walk starts at the Sensory Garden in Ray Morton Park and you can download the full brochure by clicking on the map.
