Manningham Council has created a series of colourful new animal stencil artworks to mark three of Manningham’s major trails, including the Ruffey Trail and Green Gully Trail in Templestowe, and the Mullum Mullum Trail in Donvale.
The stencil artworks have been used at the entry points of each trail to act as a marker for walkers and cyclists and each depict animals that can be found in the local area.
Animals featured along the trails include:
- Ruffey Trail – a longneck turtle, which can be found in Ruffey Lake
- Green Gully Trail – a blue wren, which is often seen along this stretch of trail
- Mullum Mullum Trail – a platypus, which can be found in the Mullum Mulum Creek.
Manningham Mayor Cr Jennifer Yang said the artworks are beautiful and bright, and an interesting new feature for the community to enjoy along each of the trails.
“The artworks are a great new feature and addition to three of our most popular walking and cycling trails in Manningham.
“I encourage all of our residents to get out and about and enjoy the fantastic array of walking and bike trails we have on offer in Manningham.”
