Mungindi Sculpture Trail

, Mungindi 2406

Ph: 0746208877

The 2.5km Mungindi Sculpture Trail, which starts at Barwon River Park, is an open-air art gallery installation that uniquely crosses the Queensland/New South Wales border in two spots.

Featuring ten raw and rustic sculptures by award-winning local artist Tony ‘Nicko’ McMillan, who tragically died in 2016 at 54 years of age, the trail delivers a new perspective on art and nature.

To celebrate a rich life lived with honour, generosity and grace, Nicko’s family generously donated the to the Mungindi community – the town he loved intensely and with enduring loyalty.

Working in collaboration with the Mungindi Progress Association and the Moree Plains Shire Council, the Balonne Shire Council utilised funding from the Murray-Darling Basin Economic Development Program to pay tribute to Nicko and showcase the sculptures for everyone’s enjoyment.

Each sculpture is accompanied by interpretative signage along with a brief video accessed via a QR Code explaining the story behind each piece.
