Goondiwindi Region has plenty going on when it comes to art and culture. To begin your journey, take a step back to the 19th century at the Goondiwindi Customs House Museum. A border customs point before federation, this authentically restored building houses a colourful collection of mementos from yesteryear. Then, spend time exploring Lanescape’s vibrant street art on Bowen Lane, the classic architecture of Marshall street, and exhibitions featuring local talent at the Goondiwindi Regional Civic Centre Art Space.
Then, head to Texas via Yelarbon, where you can check out Queensland’s largest mural silos, featuring a mammoth and gorgeous 1,800-square-metre painting that works its way across eight silos.
In Texas, head to the Texas Heritage and Tobacco Museum to learn about the area’s rich past, and visit the interactive Texas Rabbit Works to step back in time to a forgotten era of Australian history when rabbit plagues threatened the existence of rural communities. Spend time enjoying local art and history at the Texas Cultural Centre and Regional Art Gallery, which often has pieces for sale and features an amazing photographic display of the 2011 floods.
And don’t miss Inglewood’s wonderful Heritage Centre and Australian Tobacco Museum, which showcases a fascinating written and pictorial history of the town and features artefacts from a bygone era.
